|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00258804|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : November 28, 2005
Last Update Posted : June 8, 2011
Primary Objectives :
- To compare the number of hypoglycaemic events (severe, symptomatic, asymptomatic, nocturnal) in patients with type 2 diabetes treated with insulin glargine (Lantus®) and glimepiride (Amaryl®), before, during and after the period of fasting in Ramadan.
Secondary Objectives :
- To assess glycaemic control before, during and after Ramadan in terms of HbA1c, FBG, and 8-point blood glucose profile (FBG and 8-point blood glucose profile will be collected with a blood glucose monitor through a monthly patient diary).
- To assess the relationship between hypoglycaemia events during Ramadan and blood glucose control prior and during Ramadan.
- To assess patient satisfaction
- To document adverse events (all serious adverse events, non serious adverse events) throughout the study (all events will be collected through the monthly patient diary).
