NovoLog comes in a single strength, which is 100 units per millilitre (U-100).
Is there a sliding scale dosing method for NovoLog insulin?
Sliding scale can help you figure out how much NovoLog insulin you should take. This scale uses a chart and is based on how high or low your blood sugar is at the moment.

The sliding scale helps decide if you need a lot of NovoLog or just a little. You can use it with any type of NovoLog, like the FlexPen.
Usually, this scale is used when your blood sugar is too high, especially in a hospital. The higher your blood sugar is, the more NovoLog you might need to bring it down.
You should talk to your doctor about whether you should use the sliding scale for your NovoLog dose. They might suggest a different method that’s better for you.
