Glargine U300 Hospital Trial

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to find out if treatment with Glargine U300 when compared to Glargine U100 will result in similar sugar control in patients with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), who are admitted to the hospital and then transition at home, after discharge from the hospital.

Detailed Study Description

Several randomized clinical trials done previously in medicine and surgical patients with T2D have shown that basal bolus regimen with glargine results in a lower mean daily blood glucose (BG) concentrations compared to the sole use of sliding scale regular insulin (SSI) and in lower rate of hospital complications. Glargine U300 results in similar improvement but in lower rate of hypoglycemia than treatment with glargine U100. No previous studies; however, have compared the efficacy and safety of glargine U300 in the management of hyperglycemia and diabetes in the hospital setting. This study will determine if treatment with glargine U300 has a similar glucose control in patients with diabetes admitted to the hospital and if glargine U300 will result in lower number of low blood sugars compared to glargine U100 .
