You can also look into basal-bolus regime.  Under this approach you work out a carb-insulin ratio and you dose then based on how many carbs you eat.  You can also work out correction ratios.  Ie.  how much 1 unit insulin will drop your blood sugar.  This will be much more accurate in terms of managing blood sugars than sliding scale which is more about correction after the fact.
