Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  1. Male or female subjects 18 years of age or older diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus
  2. Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) of 6.5% to 11.0% and an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) greater or equal to 60 ml/min/1.73m² at screening

  2. Any concomitant medication known to interfere with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) activity or treatment with any other drugs to reduce blood glucose other than insulin
  3. History of macrovascular disease or any other disease which would interfere with trial participation or any ongoing clinical condition that would jeopardize subject safety or study compliance based on investigator judgement
