|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Type 1 Diabetes||Drug: insulin levemir / aspart Drug: human insulin /insulin isophane||Phase 4|
The primary objective is to evaluate the effects of insulin analogue and human insulin on incidence of severe hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetic patients prone to hypoglycaemia.Secondary endpoints are effect on incidence of symptomatic and asymptomatic documented hypoglycaemia.
Study Design: An open, randomised, controlled, cross-over multi-centre study. Each treatment period lasts for one year. Patients will be randomised to treatment with basal bolus therapy with insulin detemir / aspart and insulatard / actrapid in random order. Endpoints will be assessed during the last 9 months of each treatment arm.
Patient population: 250 type 1 diabetic patients with a history of two or more episodes of severe hypoglycaemia during the preceding year.
Interventions: Basal bolus therapy with insulin detemir / aspart and insulatard / human actrapid in random order. Each treatment period lasts 12 months.
Methods: Patients will record all events of severe hypoglycaemia, documented symptomatic and asymptomatic hypoglycaemia in a diary and report all events of severe hypoglycaemia by telephone within 24 hours. All patients will be instructed to do and record home blood glucose monitoring (SMBG) i.e. 7 point profiles twice per week and nocturnal measurements once every month.
Outcomes: Severe hypoglycaemia, documented symptomatic and asymptomatic hypoglycaemia Efficacy: Number of reported episodes of severe, documented symptomatic and asymptomatic hypoglycaemia during the last 9 months of treatment - during daytime and night time.
Safety: Adverse reactions
