This study is conducted in Europe. The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the blood glucose control when using NovoMix® 50 up to 12 months after initiation subjects with type 2 diabetes currently on a therapy with human biphasic insulin. An additional objective is also to observe the different regimes of starting and maintaining the treatment with NovoMix® 50 during one year.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Type 2 diabetes patients from both general and speciality practice settings who have been deemed appropriate to receive NovoMix® 50 as new treatment and as part of routine out-patient care by the prescribing physician.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Type 2 diabetes treated with biphasic human insulin with or without metformin
  • Inadequate glycaemic control or is experiencing hypoglycaemic events or would, in the physician's opinion, benefit from treatment with NovoMix® 50

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with diagnosed type 1 diabetes mellitus
  • Subjects treated with short acting or intermediate acting human insulin or any insulin analogue
  • Subjects who are unlikely to comply with study description, e.g. uncooperative attitude, inability to come for regular visits
  • Subjects with a hypersensitivity to biphasic insulin aspart 50 (NovoMix® 50 )or to any of the excipients
  • Women of childbearing potential, who are pregnant, breast-feeding or intend to become pregnant within next 12 months
