Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to compare the effect in blood sugar control between Lantus and twice daily intermediate acting insulins (NPH or Lente) when used as the basal insulin in a multiple daily injection setting with fast acting insulin (Lispro)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus Drug: Lantus (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection) Drug: Humulin N Drug: Humulin L Drug: Lispro Phase 3

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. to measure change in glycemic control as measured by hemoglobin A1c (A1c). [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint (last available post-treatment assessment) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in A1c [ Time Frame: from baseline to individual study time points ]
  2. Percentage of subjects achieving an A1c ≤7.0; percent of preteens (12 years and below) achieving 8%; teens (13-18 years) achieving 7.5% [ Time Frame: During the study conduct ]
  3. Change in fasting self-monitored blood glucose (SMBG) for weekdays, weekends and weekday/weekend combined [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  4. Change in urinary spot random microalbumin-to-creatinine (A/C) ratio [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  5. Change in 8-point blood glucose profiles for weekdays, weekends, and weekday/weekend combined [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  6. Change in average basal insulin doses [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  7. Change in lipids (total cholesterol [TC], high-density lipoprotein cholesterol [HDL], low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL], and triglycerides [TGs]) [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  8. Change in glucose [ Time Frame: from baseline to endpoint ]
  9. Occurrence of hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ]
  10. Adverse events (AEs) [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ]
  11. Clinical values: physical examination, vital signs, change in age-adjusted body mass index (BMI) [ Time Frame: from the informed consent signature to the end of the study ]
