Arms and Interventions


Real-world adult population with type 2 diabetes mellitus in Japan.

Drug: IDegLira

    % point

Secondary Outcome Measures

  3. Number of patient-reported severe hypoglycaemic after initiation of treatment with Xultophy® [From baseline (Visit 1) to 26 weeks (Visit 3)]

    Count of episodes Severe hypoglycaemia: Defined as an episode of hypoglycaemia requiring assistance of another person to actively administer carbohydrate, glucagon or take other corrective action episodes

  4. Change in concomitant OAD(s) (Oral antidiabetic drugs ) including change in number, class, and frequency of concomitant OAD(s), after initiation of treatment of Xultophy® (Yes/No) [From baseline (Visit 1) to 26 weeks (Visit 3)]

    Count of patients
