Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency of subjects with HbA1c ≤ 7.0 % and > 7.0 % [ Time Frame: At endpoint ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of fasting blood glucose [ Time Frame: baseline to endpoint ]
  2. Change of nocturnal & mean daytime blood glucose [ Time Frame: baseline to endpoint ]
  3. Change of fasting plasma glucose [ Time Frame: baseline to endpoint and all visits ]
  4. Frequency of subjects with hypoglycemic events (overall, severe, non-severe, nocturnal, asymptomatic, symptomatic) [ Time Frame: Baseline to endpoint ]
  5. Frequency of hypoglycemic events(overall, severe, non-severe, nocturnal, asymptomatic, symptomatic) [ Time Frame: Baseline to endpoint ]
  6. Frequency of subjects with FBG ≤ 100 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/l), 100 mg/dl < FBG ≤ 120 mg/dl (5.5 mmol/l < FBG ≤ 6.6 mmol/l), 120 mg/dl < FBG ≤ 150 mg/dl (6.6 mmol/l < FBG ≤ 8.3 mmol/l) and > 150 mg/dl (> 8.3 mmol/l) [ Time Frame: At endpoint ]
