  Purpose

This trial is conducted in Europe. The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the blood glucose control (HbA1c) using NovoRapid® (insulin aspart) and Levemir® (insulin detemir) after switch from human insulins for treatment of type 1 diabetes under normal clinical practice conditions in Romania.
