Further study details as provided by Novo Nordisk A/S:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The difference between plasma glucose concentrations immediately pre-exercise and the minimum plasma glucose concentrations (nadir) in the period 0-150 min following exercise [ Time Frame: following 4 weeks of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
