    You have not given enough information to make useful suggestions. What is the length of action on your insulin? What is your blood sugar before dinner? Could you titrated down the dose to 4 units? Are you eating some carbohydrate at dinner? Also some protein and fat? Are you more physically active in the evening? I suggest talking with your doctor and bringing good blood glucose and food records for him to study.
