NOVOLOG SLIDING SCALE PDF

The hourly rate is adjusted according to hourly blood glucose measurements. It is changed slightly so that it acts more quickly than regular human insulin. That is why it is called analog insulin. For information on food labels and carb counting, click here. You and your diabetes care team will also have to see how your physical activity affects your insulin dosage and adjust it as needed. For example, when you are very physically active, you have to decide whether to eat more or take less insulin, since both physical activity and insulin decrease the amount of sugar in the blood.

The hourly rate is adjusted according to hourly blood glucose measurements. It is changed slightly so that it acts more quickly than regular human insulin.

That is why it is called analog insulin. For information on food labels and carb counting, click here. You and your diabetes care team will also have to see how your physical activity affects your insulin dosage and adjust it as needed.

For example, when you are very physically active, you have to decide whether to eat more or take less insulin, since both physical activity and insulin decrease the amount of sugar in the blood. Checking your blood sugar often when you are physically active will help you figure out how each type of physical activity you do affects your blood sugar. While you are figuring out how to adjust your insulin dose, you will want to stay in close touch with your diabetes care team.

It also records the insulin dose and time passed since the last injection. This tool was created to help with adding and adjusting your mealtime insulin dose. The term "sliding scale" refers to the progressive increase in pre-meal or nighttime insulin doses. Sliding scale insulin regimens approximate daily insulin requirements.

You take the same long-acting insulin dose no matter what the blood glucose level. The bolus insulin is based on the blood sugar level before the meal or at bedtime Pre-mixed insulin doses are based on the blood sugar level before the meal The sliding scale method does not accommodate changes in insulin needs related to snacks or to stress and activity.

You still need to count carbohydrates. Sliding scales are less effective in covering a pre-meal high blood sugar, because the high blood glucose correction and food bolus cannot be split. Points To Remember!

Sliding scale regimens may include a bedtime high blood sugar correction. As the nighttime scale only considers the amount of insulin required to drop your blood sugar level back into the target range, it should not be used to cover a bedtime snack.
