Hi

Glucose levels are good, but if you stop the insulin, then the levels will go up again. The only time the insulin dosage can be considered to be lowered, is if you are getting episodes of hypoglycaemia(low glucose levels), and then you would need to discuss the dosage adjustment with your doctor
