  Purpose
This study is conducted in Europe. The aim of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of insulin detemir (Levemir®) used as basal insulin on the glycaemic control, weight and incidence of hypoglycaemic events in insulin treated subjects with type 1 or type 2 diabetes treated with insulin NPH under normal clinical practice conditions in Slovakia.

Diabetes Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Drug: insulin detemir Drug: insulin aspart

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: An Observational 3-months Study to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Insulin Levemir® Used as Basal Insulin on the Glycaemic Control, Weight and Incidence of Hypoglycaemic Events in Insulin Treated Subjects With Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Levemir® users Drug: insulin detemir
Prescribed insulin detemir and insulin aspart based on the clinical judgement of the physician. The insulin preparations were prescribed by the physician solely as a result of a normal clinical evaluation. The physician determined the starting dose and frequency, as well as later changes to either dose or frequency, if any.
Drug: insulin aspart
Prescribed insulin detemir and insulin aspart based on the clinical judgement of the physician. The insulin preparations were prescribed by the physician solely as a result of a normal clinical evaluation. The physician determined the starting dose and frequency, as well as later changes to either dose or frequency, if any.
