  Purpose
The prevalence of diabetes is up to 11.6% according to the data released in 2013 by the China Noncommunicable Disease Surveillance Group.Less than 40% of all diagnosed-diabetes were well controlled.Among all kinds of antidiabetic medications, metformin is recommended as the first-line antihyperglycemic management for type 2 diabetes. Insulin secretagogue,repaglinide is still one of the most widely used antidiabetic medications in China. However, there were few studies comparing the effects of these two medications on glycaemic control in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes.

Active Comparator: Metformin
Initial dose of metformin 250mg once daily. During the dose titration period of 1 week, the dose could be titrated up to metformin 500 mg three times daily, according to fasting glucose values.
Drug: Metformin
Initial dose of metformin 250mg once daily. During the dose titration period of 1 week, the dose could be titrated up to metformin 500 mg three times daily, according to fasting glucose values.
