No way, no how! Diabetes is caused by either of 2 major things, the pancreas 
can no longer make insulin because the Beta cells have been killed off by
the auto-immune system or the pancreas was surgically removed (Type 1).

Type 2 is caused by poor use of insulin or reduced output.

Bad idea. The sliding scale works well when the insulin used is either 
Humalog or Regular all by itself. Including 70% of NPH with the 30% of
Regular needed for an immediate low can only complicate control when
the NPH is most active some 6 or 7 hours later.
