The dietary changes are fine, and have obviously been beneficial as your mother’s insulin dosage has been reduced, which means her glucose control is better overall, and also her weight has got less. If she still experiences low sugar levels, then she must decrease the insulin further. Unfortunately I don’t know what type of insulin she is on, but suggest that she test in the morning as well as does some post meal tests. The morning readings should be between 4 to 6 if she has no other medical problems and her kidney function is fine. As this time of weight loss and dietary change can be quite dynamic, she should be liaising with her doctor, specifically with regards to insulin reduction. Overall her dietary changes are good, but must try and avoid the low sugar readings.
