Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the difference in glycemic control as measured by HbA1C between substituting the TZD with insulin glargine and adding a third oral agent in patients who fail a TZD/sulfonylurea or TZD/metformin combination therapy [ Time Frame: During the Study Conduct ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrence of hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  2. Change in fasting plasma glucose [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  3. Percentage of patients achieving HbA1C less than or equal to 7% [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  4. Time to glycemic control [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  5. Change in body weight [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  6. Change in serum lipid profile [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
