  • Change (%) From Baseline in Body Weight (Fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
    Weight was recorded to the nearest 0.1 kg for a subject in the fasting state with an empty bladder, without shoes and only wearing light clothing. The same calibrated scale was used throughout the trial.
  • Proportion of Subjects Losing at Least 5% of Baseline Body Weight [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
    Weight was recorded to the nearest 0.1 kg for a subject in the fasting state with an empty bladder, without shoes and only wearing light clothing. The same calibrated scale was used throughout the trial.
  • Proportion of Subjects Losing More Than 10% of Baseline Body Weight [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
    Weight was recorded to the nearest 0.1 kg for a subject in the fasting state with an empty bladder, without shoes and only wearing light clothing. The same calibrated scale was used throughout the trial.
  • Change from baseline in body weight (fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
  • Proportion of Subjects Losing at Least 5% of Baseline Body Weight [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
  • Proportion of Subjects Losing More Than 10% of Baseline Body Weight [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]

  • Change (%-Points) From Baseline in HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemoglobin A1c) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
    Change in HbA1c (%-points) was calculated as the difference between the HbA1c (%) at Week 0 and Week 56.
  • Proportion of Subjects Reaching Target HbA1c Below 7% [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
  • Proportion of Subjects Reaching Target HbA1c Below or Equal to 6.5% [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
  • Change From Baseline in Waist Circumference [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
  • Change (%) From Baseline in Body Weight (Fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 68 ]
    Weight was recorded to the nearest 0.1 kg for a subject in the fasting state with an empty bladder, without shoes and only wearing light clothing. The same calibrated scale was used throughout the trial.
  • Change (%) From Week 56 to 68 in Body Weight (Fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 56, week 68 ]
    Weight was recorded to the nearest 0.1 kg for a subject in the fasting state with an empty bladder, without shoes and only wearing light clothing. The same calibrated scale was used throughout the trial.
  • Change From Baseline in Waist Circumference [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 68 ]
  • Change From Week 56 to 68 in Waist Circumference [ Time Frame: Week 56, week 68 ]
  • Incidence of Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-56 ]
    Hypoglycaemic episodes were classified according to American Diabetes Association (ADA) definitions as well as to the Novo Nordisk definition of a minor hypoglycaemic event (blood glucose level below approximately 2.8 mmol/L [50 mg/dL] or plasma glucose level below 3.1 mmol/L [56 mg/dL]).
  • Change from baseline in HbA1c (glycosylated haemoglobin A1c) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
  • Proportion of Subjects Reaching Target HbA1c Below 7% [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
  • Proportion of Subjects Reaching Target HbA1c Below or Equal to 6.5% [ Time Frame: at 56 weeks ]
  • Change From Baseline in Waist Circumference [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 56 ]
  • Change from baseline in body weight (fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 68 ]
  • Change from baseline in body weight (fasting) [ Time Frame: Week 56, week 68 ]
  • Change From Baseline in Waist Circumference [ Time Frame: Week 0, week 68 ]
  • Change in waist circumference [ Time Frame: Week 56, week 68 ]
  • Incidence of Hypoglycaemic Episodes [ Time Frame: Weeks 0-56 ]

Effect of Liraglutide on Body Weight in Overweight or Obese Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes: SCALE™ - Diabetes
Effect of Liraglutide on Body Weight in Overweight or Obese Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes: A 56 Week Randomised, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Three Armed Parallel Group, Multi-centre, Multinational Trial With a 12 Week Observational Follow-up Period

This trial is conducted in Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States of America (USA).

The aim of this trial is to investigate the potential of liraglutide to induce and maintain weight loss in overweight or obese subjects with type 2 diabetes. Treatment will be added onto subject's pre-trial background diabetes treatment of either diet and exercise only or single compound oral antidiabetic drug (OAD) treatment (metformin, sulphonylurea [SU] or glitazone) or combination OAD treatment (metformin, sulphonylurea or glitazone). The duration of the trial will be 56 weeks followed by a 12 week observational follow-up period.
