Detailed Description:

The goal of this mechanistic study is to investigate the effect of Linagliptin in comparison to Glimepiride as add on therapy on several parameters characterizing postprandial metabolism and oxidative stress in type 2 diabetic patients on stable control with metformin.

This mechanistic phase IV study has a prospective, comparative, open, randomized, two arm and exploratory design. Overall 40 Patients will be randomized to two treatment arms both receiving Metformin at a maximally tolerated dose. In addition to that both treatment groups will receive either an individually titrated dose of Glimepiride or 5mg once daily of Linagliptin. Subsequent to a standardized meal, several parameters reflecting beta cell function, metabolism and oxidative stress will be evaluated.
