The reason that has been explained to me while working on the floors is some diabetics are more sensitive to insulin then others. This person maybe more sensitive; which means that their own insulin production should bring them back down to normal range and with the added insulin injection from the sliding scale would cause the patient to go into a hypoglycemic state.
A select few physician's are starting to steer away from the sliding scale and base their insulin more on prandial, basal, and coverage based on carbohydrate counting.
