Brief Summary:

To evaluate the efficiency of Lantus plus combined oral hypoglycaemic agents in terms of respondents percentage. The respondent is defined as the person achieving a value in the final determination of HbA1c < 7% as its absolute value and/or a decreasing in the final value of HbA1c of more than 12% compared with the initial value (final HbA1c vs. initial HbA1c).

Describe the glycemia levels and body weight change in the two response groups, (respondents and non-respondents).

Describe the adverse events Evaluate the safety of using the medication according to the incidence and relevance of the hypoglycemia events, (symptomatic, diurnal, nocturnal, severe).

Estimate the intra-patient variability of the fasting glycemia

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1 Drug: Insulin glargine
Patients will begin with a fixed, subcutaneous dose of insulin glargine, (10 U), in its commercial presentation, which will be adjusted week by week, according to the values of the glycemia when fasting (FBG), adding 2, 4, 6 or 8 units of insulin glargine over the following twelve weeks, during which the therapeutic objective should be attained, namely the glucose goal during fasting of 100 mg/dl (<6.0 mmol/L), and the active treatment is to be continued for three more months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in the initial vs. final values of HbA1c [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  2. Number of severe hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: 9 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. - Change in the fasting glucose values with each visit [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  2. - Incidences of symptomatic and asymptomatic nocturnal hypoglycemia - Evaluations of safety with regards to the use of insulin glargine, recording the adverse events, excluding hypoglycemia - Abnormal laboratory results [ Time Frame: 9 months ]
  3. - Change in body weight initial visit vs. final visit [ Time Frame: 9 months ]

  • A history of drug or alcohol abuse in the last two years or any current addiction
  • Current use of insulin glargine
  • Any clinically relevant, cardiovascular, hepatic, neurological, endocrinal or systemic major disease, or any other type, which may hinder the development of the protocol or the interpretation of the results of the trial
  • Known existence of GAD (glutamic acid decarboxylase) antibodies
