The study will be conducted in a crossover manner: one group starting with the intensive arm followed by the non intensive arm and vice versa. Blood glucose, HbA1C, Fructosamine, 3 days continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS), total daily insulin dose, fasting lipid profile, body impedance and BMR will be measured. Self esteem and quality of life questionnaires will be filled.
