Q:

How do you know how to increase your Humalog when your sugar reading is 275?

A:

Your healthcare provider can give you something called a “sliding scale.” The sliding scale provides you with an insulin dose based upon your pre-meal blood glucose reading. As the blood glucose reading goes up, so too will the dose on the sliding scale. Sliding scale doses are different for everyone. Checking with your healthcare provider first and determining the correct dose is important for you and for anyone considering using a sliding scale.
