Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate once weekly injections of LY2189265 (adjusted and non-adjusted doses) compared to placebo on blood glucose as measured by HbA1C change from baseline in overweight patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus [ Time Frame: at 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fasting blood glucose [ Time Frame: baseline and 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Meal test glucose excursion (change in blood glucose to test meal) [ Time Frame: baseline and 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) 8-point profile [ Time Frame: 2 separate days in weeks preceeding baseline visit, week 4, week 8, and at 16 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Body weight and waist circumference [ Time Frame: weight at every clinic visit and waist at baseline and week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • B-cell function and insulin sensitivity as estimated by the updated Homeostasis Model Assessment tool (HOMA2) [ Time Frame: baseline and at 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Percentage of Patients achieving an HbA1C of < 7% and <, equal to 6.5% [ Time Frame: baseline, week 4,8, and 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate safety/tolerability of LY2189265 compared to placebo; Evaluate symptoms of nausea,vomiting,diarrhea,dyspepsia measured by Visual Analog Scale and Gastroparesis Cardinal Symptom Index questionnaire; Evaluate hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia,lipids [ Time Frame: baseline, week 4,8, and 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of LY2189265 and the relationship between LY2189265 exposure and safety measures. [ Time Frame: week 4,8,and 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To measure and evaluate patient perception of medication effectiveness using the Perceptions about Medications - Diabetes (PAM-D-S) questionnaire. [ Time Frame: baseline, week 4,8, and 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To test the psychometric properties of the PAM-D-S and to validate its use for future clinical trials. [ Time Frame: baseline, week 4,8 and 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus > 3 months by history prior to entering the trial,based on disease diagnostic criteria from the ADA.
  • Men or women age 18 or older. Women must have negative pregnancy test and be willing to use birth control during study duration and one month post.
  • Have HbA1C of > 7.0 to < or equal to 10.5% as determined by central laboratory at visit one.
  • Have a BMI (body mass index) between 27 and 40 kg/m2, inclusive.
