  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus.
  • HbA1c <7.0% or HbA1c >10% at Screening.
  • Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) >15 mmol/L (>270 mg/dL) measured by the central laboratory at Screening (Visit 1) and confirmed by a repeat test (>15 mmol/L [>270 mg/dL]) before randomization.
  • Body mass index 20 or >45 kg/m at Screening.
  • Pregnant (confirmed by pregnancy test at the Screening) or breast-feeding women.
  • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) not willing to use highly effective method(s) of birth control during the study treatment period and the follow-up period, or who are unwilling or unable to be tested for pregnancy (see Appendix A) during the study.
  • Previous use of any antidiabetic drug other than metformin within 12 weeks preceding the Screening Visit.

  • Previous insulin use >1 month (at any time, except for treatment of gestational diabetes).
  • History of prior gastric surgical procedure, including gastric banding, or inflammatory bowel disease within 3 years prior to the Screening Visit.
  • Difficulty swallowing such that the patient cannot take the investigational medicinal product (IMP).

  • History of hypertensive emergency within 12 weeks prior to Screening.
  • Patients who have previously been randomized in any clinical trial of sotagliflozin/LX4211.

  • Patients with severe anemia, severe cardiovascular (including congestive heart failure New York Heart Association IV), respiratory, hepatic, neurological, psychiatric, or active malignant tumor or other major systemic disease that, according to Investigator, will preclude their safe participation in this study, or will make implementation of the protocol or interpretation of the study results difficult.
  • Aspartate aminotransferase and/or alanine aminotransferase: >3 times the upper limit of the normal laboratory range (ULN).
  • Total bilirubin: >1.5 times ULN (except in case of Gilbert's syndrome).
  • Patients who have taken other investigational drugs within 12 weeks or 5 half-lives from Screening whichever is longer.
  • Patients unwilling or unable to perform self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG), complete the patient diary, or comply with study visits and other study procedures as required per protocol.
