Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the changes in the metabolomic parameters before and after Saxagliptin treatment in type 2 diabetic patients. [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The primary objective of the study is to compare the different metabolomic profiling at baseline (before treatment) and at the end of the study drug administration(24 weeks) using a Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) analysis.
