This trial is conducted in Japan. The aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the safety (with emphasis on hypoglycaemia) after switching from long-acting insulin analogue or intermediate-acting insulin to insulin degludec (NN1250, SIBA) on a basal-bolus regimen in subjects with type 1 diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1
Drug: insulin degludec
Drug: insulin detemir
Drug: insulin aspart
Phase 2

Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 6-week, Randomised, Multi-centre, Open-labelled, Parallel Group, Exploratory Trial to Investigate the Safety of SIBA Once Daily + NovoRapid® Compared to Insulin Detemir Once Daily + NovoRapid®, All in a Basal-bolus Regimen in Subjects With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
