Q: I take 60 units of lantus and need to know sliding scale with humalog

I need to know what the sliding scale of Humalog should be, I take 60 units of Lantus once a day. What is the max that is safe to take of Humalog at a time with meals? My prescription says 60 units per day of Humalog as needed. My homehealth care nurse says that it shouldn't be over 14 units at a time, not 20.
