Otherwise - it's wait until you're dying and go to the ER. Or at least hope someone gets you to an ER when you get goofy/unconscious from blood sugar problems.
Anyone more advanced than a rookie Medical assistant knows insulin dosing, you don't need a dedicated doctor to help you. Insulin dosing is not an arcane formula only pharmacists and endocrinologists can understand.
