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 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma glucose pre-exercise & post-exercise [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hypoglycaemia episodes (major and minor episodes) during exercise, afterwards & from end of study until 07:30 the following morning [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Plasma glucose profile post-exercise [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of adverse events during the trial [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
