If all the physical tests are coming back normal, could it be behavioral? We have a dog that will drink just for the sake of drinking. All the tests came back normal. So we manage it by letting him take as much as he wants during the day, and limiting his access to water after his evening meals (one small bowl and that's it). During the day he can go out as often as he needs to, but we're once again sleeping through the night!
Ask your vet if he thinks a schedule like that might be helpful for Timmy.

Patches&Dozer, this being such an old thread, you might want to start a new thread in the health forum.
More people will see it. Use a descriptive title that mentions insulin levels and diabetes
There are quite a few members who have been managing their pets' diabetes for years and I'm sure there will be more than one with some advice!
