My mother has diabetes. Should she take insulin when she dosen't check her sugar and her blood sugar is low? She will take insulin at set times. When she dosen't eat right, her sugar drops, but she still takes insulin. she then goes into a "stupor" or drunkin, disoriented type of behavior. sometimes she fights me. I will take her blood sugar and it is usually between 40-60. So I end up making her eat a candy bar and about 15 minutes later she starts acting normal and dosen't remember anything. Help! I don't know what to do. I've told her doctor and he checked her A1-C and said there's nothing wrong with her she's doing everything right. I know this is not normal and is doing a lot of ware and tear on her body. Any suggestions?
