Proteins could take longer to be converted into a form
that will up the blood glucose and eating is a form of
exercise which may be why the stupor situations are
happening: she is expending energy to eat and to digest
and process without getting a fast enough benefit.

Try to have food ALWAYS available for her. Twice a day
is nowhere near enough.

She sounds like a classic untreated insulinoma ferret and
if her blood tests say that then Prednisolone two or three
times a day will help her as a start for her meds, so, too,
may surgery depending on how the blood work turns out.
