plz remember that,taking insulin in small dosease will definately lower blood sugar rapidly no doubt, even less than 50mg/dl where hypoglysemic state will develop in the body&persistiently,it will remain in same stae for some time(due to sudden relase of hormone glucogan,epinephrine which inturn increases blood sugar to the point of equlibrium only) in low dosease of insulin taken nondiabetic person.needs medical attention for every thing,of course.
