Primary Objective:

- To evaluate the decrease of Hb A1c ≥ 1% after 6 month treatment in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) uncontrolled on Oral Antidiabetics (OADs)

Secondary Objectives:

  • To evaluate the percentage of patients with Hb A1c < 7.5%,
  • To evaluate the rate of hypoglycaemia (symptomatic, severe)
  • To evaluate the middle dose of insulin per product - Insuman Basal, Insuman Comb, Insuman Rapid after 6 month treatment
  • To evaluate the change in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) after 6 month treatment
  • To assess the overall safety
  • To evaluate the efficacy of education courses in Diabetes Schools (% of correct answers after second test compare to the testing of the initial level)
