Will Royal Jelly help a dog with Diabetes and Possible later stage of Diabetes - Ketoacidosis
The problem is as follows:
Since mid May until now the third week of July - My dog has dropped in weight from 16.4 pounds to 12.2 or 12.4 pounds, has hair loss, lethargy, drinks large volumes of water, has developed what I could call an advanced stage of cataracts in both eyes.
The simple solution is to take the dog to the vet. However, I am unemployed and just scraping by. A visit to the vet and the accompanying bills and medicine are out of my reach.
I'm looking everywhere for solutions. My dog is family and very much like a child to me
Please help me, Please.
Sorry to hear about your dog's health challenges. Research indicates that royal jelly will help with help balance blood sugar AND that it has insulin like activity. The study I've listed below was done in humans at a dose of 20 grams per day. You'd need to cut the dose quite a bit for you dog.
The other product you might consider is something called GlucoSmart. This product is highly effective. It comes in capsules but you'd simply dump half a capsule per day into your dog's food.
Diabetes and Blood Sugar Control
Earlier studies have shown that royal jelly has insulin-like activity. However, there have so far been no clinical trials to support these findings. So, a group of German doctors at the Justus-Liebig University Hospital in Germany had twenty volunteers undergo the standardized oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and afterwards a second OGTT after ingestion of 20 g of royal jelly.
The doctors found that after 2 hours, the serum sugar levels of the 20 volunteers were much lower after taking the 20 g of Royal Jelly than when they didn't take it.
Hope that helps Stan,
