It depends on how high her blood glucose is and how long she has diabetes. There had been studies that showed diabetes patients who started insulin early could help the pancreas recover and be able to stop the insulin after 6 months of injection. I am not suggesting that your mother can stop her insulin after few months. However, it has happened to someone.

I understand a lot of patients are scared of injecting insulin. However, the later she start her insulin injection, the more difficult it is for her to control her glucose level. She should follow her doctor's advices.
