1- Diabetes is uncontrolled , A1c should be around 6.5 for her
2- We do not use short acting only - typically a basal once daily + oral agents , or mix insulin twice daily, or Basal plus short acting is used depending on type and severity of Diabetes.
3- I can see her or consult of of my other fellow endocrinologist of your choice

Hope it helps
