This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Sanofi Identifier:
First received: August 17, 2007
Last updated: December 4, 2009
Last verified: December 2009

Primary objective:

To assess quality of Life (QoL) changes and treatment satisfaction in a real life situation in patients with Type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on a combination of oral antidiabetic drugs (OAD) plus Neutral Protamine Hagedrone (NHP) insulin treatment that are switched to insulin glargine.

Secondary objective:

To determine:

change in HbA1c, comparision of the incidence of symptomatic hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia before and after introduction of insulin glargine, change in weight, change in insulin dose.

Condition Intervention Phase

Further study details as provided by Sanofi:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The fear of hypoglycaemia scale (HFS) [ Time Frame: before the switch to insulin glargine and at 3 and 9 months of follow up. ]
  • 12 - Item Well-Being Questionnaaire (WBQ12) [ Time Frame: before the switch to insulin glargine and at 3 and 9 months of follow up. ]
  • Glycaemic controll will be asessed by HbA1c values [ Time Frame: week 12 and week 40 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of symptomatic hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: sreening to follow-up phases ]

Enrollment: 26
Study Start Date: October 2005
Study Completion Date: March 2008
Primary Completion Date: March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
insulin glargine
Drug: Insulin Glargine

Lantus (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection), individual dosing , subcutaneous injection, 100 IU/ml.

Duration of treatment will be judge by the investigator. Last QoL assessed in the study will be 9 months after start of glargine treatment.
