could reducing dose of non-selective beta blocker cause insulin surge while still blocking compensatory sugar control and induce hypoglycemic shock?

Insulin surge: I don't fully understand your question! Insulin, if given in too high a dose, can induce hypoglycemia. A beta blocker is unlikely to cause an "insulin surge". Can you please try and give me some more information.
