Brief Summary:

Safety study with multiple oral doses of LY2608204 given to patients with type 2 diabetes. Study subjects will receive once daily doses of LY2608204 for a total treatment duration of up to 28 days. In this study, each patient will receive increasing doses of LY2608204 until reaching the highest dose that they can tolerate.

Continuous glucose monitoring devices will be employed for each patient to monitor for hypoglycemia during study treatment. Dose titration and dose reduction is determined for each individual patient based on their safety and glycemic data.

  • If female, are not of child-bearing potential due to surgical sterilisation (hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy or tubal ligation) or menopause
  • Are males or females who are at least 18 years old (for sites outside of Singapore) or at least 21 years old (for sites within Singapore) but no more than 70 years old (for all sites)
