Sliding Scale Builder
Summary: This calculator is intended to help build a sliding scale. It uses the Total Daily Dose (TDD) of insulin and the 'Rule of 1700' to make the calculation. Please temper administration of large doses of insulin with good clinical judgement.

<-- What is the patient's usual total daily dose (TDD)of insulin? (units) Add up all the insulin the patient normal takes in a day. This includes long-, intermediate-, short-, and/or rapid-acting insulins. This value must be more than 0.
NOTE: TDD of 68 = 25 increment, TDD of 57 = 30 increment, and TDD of 34 = 50 increment.
