Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Twenty Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMCs) were selected to participate in this cooperative study. The recruitment period was from 12/01/00 to 05/31/03.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
A patient had to meet all the screening criteria for eligibility and had to sign a consent form with blood samples and meet all entry criteria for pre-randomization testing. Once the patient was deemed appropriate for the study, Hines completed the randomization assignment.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Standard Glycemic Control Standard glycemic control to maintain HbA1c between 8.0-9.0%. Metformin 500 mg Rosiglitazone 4 mg Glimepiride 2 mg Insulin 1 unit 9 lbs

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Our study had several limitations. Since we were studying veterans, the patients were predominantly men, and extrapolation of our findings to women must be done with caution.Changes in therapeutic agents have occurred since the design of our protocol
