Hello. Thank you for posting.

The term “sliding scale” refers to the progressive increase in the pre-meal or nighttime insulin dose, based on pre-defined blood glucose ranges. Sliding scale insulin regimens approximate daily insulin requirements.

Below is a good resource that can help. It's also a good Diabetes resource in general.
