Sliding scale insulin is like giving patients a ride on the blood glucose roller coaster

Sliding scale insulin is like giving patients a ride on the blood glucose roller coaster...and can lead to mishaps and errors.

Giving short-acting insulin alone multiple times a day based on blood sugar levels just CHASES glucose...it doesn't CONTROL it.

And it can be risky. Using the wrong insulin or too much of the right insulin can cause blood sugar to plummet...increasing the risk of coma and death.
