I'm sorry to hear of this with Nancy. There's no reason for her diabetes to cause panting and tachypnea (rapid breathing) if she's well-regulated. When was she first prescribed the insulin? Which insulin and how many units are being given? What does Nancy weight, please?

I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone. Please stay in this conversation.
