Primary Outcome Measures:
  • BGpre-exe - BGminimum,exe, difference between blood glucose concentration before exercise and the minimum blood glucose concentration observed during exercise [ Time Frame: From 0 to 30 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • BGmean,exe, mean blood glucose concentration during exercise [ Time Frame: From 0 to 30 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • BGmean,30-180min,post-exe, mean blood glucose concentration [ Time Frame: Between 30 and 180 minutes, i.e. post-exercise ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • BGminimum,30-180min,post-exe, minimum blood glucose concentration [ Time Frame: Between 30 and 180 minutes, i.e. post-exercise ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: IDeg followed by IGlar Drug: insulin degludec
Subjects will be randomised to a treatment sequence consisting of two treatment periods in which the subjects will receive IDeg and IGlar, respectively. Administered subcutaneously (s.c., under the skin) once daily. Dose individually adjusted.
