Brief Summary:
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.
