Brief Summary:
This study compares the effect on blood sugar levels of two medicines: insulin degludec and insulin glargine in people with type 2 diabetes. Participants will be treated with insulin degludec and insulin glargine during two different periods. Which treatment participants get first is decided by chance. Both medicines are approved for use in humans and available on the market. They can already be prescribed by participants' doctors. Participants will get pre-filled insulin pens to inject these insulins with. The study will last for about 41 weeks. Participants will visit the clinic 13 times and have 27 phone calls with the study doctor or study staff. At 12 of the clinic visits they will take blood samples. In order to evaluate the changes in participants' blood sugar level over time, participants will be asked to wear a small (35 millimetres (mm) x 5 mm) sensor on the back of participants' upper arm 3 times during the study. Each time participants must wear the sensor for 2 weeks. This sensor is called FreeStyle Libre Pro®. It has a very small tip which is 0.4 mm thick and is inserted 5 mm under participants' skin. Please note that participants will not be able to see the sensor readings while wearing it. The study doctor will show participants the readings when participants return to the clinic. Participants will be asked to fill in a diary in between visits. Participants will have contact with the study doctor or study staff each week. This is to adjust the dose of participants' study medicines and to ensure that participants are well. Women cannot take part if pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to become pregnant during the study period.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Insulin degludec
Participants will receive insulin degludec in period 1 and 2 in a cross-over manner.
Drug: Insulin degludec
Participants will receive insulin degludec U100 subcutaneous (s.c.) injection once daily for 36 weeks. Doses will be adjusted according to the fasting self-measured plasma glucose (SMPG) values. Participants earlier treated with one or more allowed oral antidiabetic drug(s) (OAD(s)), should continue their pre-trial OAD(s) treatment throughout the trial.
Other Name: Tresiba®

Active Comparator: Insulin glargine
Participants will receive insulin glargine in period 1 and 2 in a cross-over manner.
Drug: Insulin glargine
Participants will receive insulin glargine U100 s.c. injection once daily for 36 weeks. Doses will be adjusted according to the fasting SMPG values. Participants earlier treated with one or more allowed OAD(s), should continue their pre-trial OAD(s) treatment throughout the trial.
Other Name: Lantus®




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time spent in glycaemic target range 70-180 mg/dL (3.9-10.0 mmol/L) both inclusive, using flash glucose monitoring (FGM) [ Time Frame: During the 2-week maintenance period: weeks 16-17 (period-1) and weeks 34-35 (period-2) ]
    Measured as percentage of time.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time spent in tight glycaemic target range 70-140 mg/dL (3.9-7.8 mmol/L) both inclusive, using FGM [ Time Frame: During the 2-week maintenance period: weeks 16-17 (period-1) and weeks 34-35 (period-2) ]
    Measured as percentage of time.

  2. Time spent in nocturnal glycaemic target range 70-140 mg/dL (3.9-7.8 mmol/L) both inclusive, in the nocturnal period (00:01 am - 05:59 am both inclusive) using FGM [ Time Frame: During the 2-week maintenance period: weeks 16-17 (period-1) and weeks 34-35 (period-2) ]
    Measured as percentage of time.

  3. Level of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: After the 2-week maintenance period: weeks 16-17 (period-1) and weeks 34-35 (period-2) ]
    Measured as percentage of HbA1c.

  4. Mean glucose levels using FGM [ Time Frame: During the 2-week maintenance period: weeks 16-17 (period-1) and weeks 34-35 (period-2) ]
    Measured as mg/dL.
