Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: GlucoTab System Device: GlucoTab System

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean percentage of blood glucose measurements in the target range 70 to 140 mg/dl, as calculated by all premeal and bedtime glucose values measured ≥ 24 hours after start of therapy [ Time Frame: duration of hospital stay (maximum three weeks) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of blood glucose measurements per day [ Time Frame: duration of hospital stay (maximum three weeks) ]
  2. Adherence to the insulin dose suggestion of the GlucoTab system [ Time Frame: duration of hospital stay (maximum three weeks) ]
  3. Mean daily blood glucose as calculated by premeal and bedtime blood glucose values: Overall and per treatment day [ Time Frame: duration of hospital stay (maximum three weeks) ]
