Sliding Scale Insulin Use and Rates of Hyperglycemia

Arch Intern Med. 1998;158(1):95. doi:

In their recent study of the effects of sliding scale insulin use on rates of hyperglycemia in hospitalized patients, Queale et al1 found no less hyperglycemia in patients using sliding scale regimens than in those not treated with sliding scale regimens. In an accompanying editorial, Sawin then concluded that sliding scales "offer no benefit to sick patients with diabetes."2
