Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Postprandial time course of Asymmetric dimethyl arginine (ADMA) after injection of insulin VIAjectTM compared with regular human insulin and insulin lispro. [ Time Frame: 0 - 240 minutes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The secondary objectives are to evaluate the postprandial time course of arterial elasticity (pulse wave analysis; PWA), blood glucose, insulin, intact proinsulin, nitrotyrosine, glucagon, ICAM-1, VCAM, E-selectin. [ Time Frame: 0 - 240 minutes ]
