Willing and able to provide a signed and dated written informed consent.
Subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus defined as an HbA1c level >6.5% or a fasting plasma glucose of > 7.0 mmol/L. If fasting plasma glucose is between 6.1 and 7.0 mmol/L then a 75 g oral glucose test will be performed to exclude diabetes mellitus.

Use of any investigational drug within 30 days preceding the first dose of medication at the start of the study.
Subjects with a documented history of significant hypersensitivity (e.g. difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, tachycardia or skin reaction) to thiazolidinediones or PPAR-γ agonists.
