This this trial is conducted in Europe. The aim of this trial is to compare glycaemic control of biphasic insulin aspart 30 (BIAsp 30) alone or combined with insulin aspart(IAsp) in patients previously treated with conventional Biphasic Human Insulin 30/70.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Drug: biphasic insulin aspart 30
Drug: insulin aspart
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Comparison of Biphasic Insulin Aspart 30 Twice Daily and Biphasic Insulin Aspart 30 Twice Daily Plus Lunchtime Injection of Insulin Aspart Treatment Efficiency in Overall Glycemic Control and Postprandial Glycemic Excursions. A Multi-center, Randomized, Open-label, Two-armed Parallel Group Trial in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Previously Treated With Conventional Biphasic Human Insulin 30/70
