  Purpose

The main objective of the study is to determine whether an intensive web-based titration system, called PANDIT (Patient Assisting Net-based Diabetes Insulin Titration), is effective in improving glycaemic control in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 using a basal insulin, compared to standard care.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean change in HbA1c [ Time Frame: Change from baseline after 13 weeks and after 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of life and treatment satisfaction [ Time Frame: Change from baseline after 13 weeks and after 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Total contact time with study staff (and the PANDIT system, if applicable) [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who reach the target of HbA1c < 7.0% [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean change in fasting plasma glucose [ Time Frame: Change from baseline after 13 weeks and after 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall incidence and rate of hypoglycaemia (mild hypoglycaemia, probable hypoglycaemia, severe hypoglycaemia and relative hypoglycaemia) [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Frequency of the usage of PANDIT among patients [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Detection of important factors for patient compliance to internet-based self-care interventions [ Time Frame: After 26 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
