Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in HbA1c at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    HbA1c is measured as a percent. Thus, this change from baseline reflects the Week 12 HbA1c percent minus the Week 0 HbA1c percent.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline at Week 12 is defined as fasting plasma glucose at Week 12 minus fasting plasma glucose at Week 0.

  • Change From Baseline in 2 Hour Postprandial Glucose at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline at Week 12 is defined as 2-hour postprandial glucose Week 12 minus 2-hour postprandial glucose Week 0.
