Given you have high liver values, I would try to get your dog the right amount of insulin sooner than later too help mitigate the formation of cataracts. You can up the insulin every few days by a few units.

Also assuming your injecting your dog correctly if the numbers dont come down with insulin increases, over the next month or so, you should follow up with a vet and have a biochem blood test just to rule out any other concurrent diseases and make sure the liver values stabilize or get better with regulation.

My dog had elevated alp and cholesterol at the onset of diabetes and have now found im dealing with a Cushing and diabetic dog which requires much more insulin than the average diabetic dog.
