This was an observational, prospective, multicentric study conducted in a cohort of subjects with type 2 diabetes and prescribed with Glucophage XR therapy from hospitals or clinics in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. Glucophage XR is being used in the Asia Pacific region for the treatment of subjects with type 2 diabetes. This study was designed to provide information on the day to-day experience of using Glucophage XR in the management of subjects with type 2 diabetes and its use in routine clinical practice in Asia Pacific region.
Glucophage (metformin) is the standard first line therapy for subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). The consensus statement from the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes has recommended metformin therapy in concurrent with lifestyle intervention at diagnosis. It has been well accepted that subjects' compliance with therapy tends to decrease as the dosage frequency increases and hence the regimens should be simplified as far as possible to support good compliance with therapy. The use of an extended release formulation of metformin (Glucophage XR) supports the simplification of treatment of subjects with type 2 diabetes by allowing a once daily administration of metformin.
- To assess the tolerability of Glucophage XR therapy when used in routine clinical practice in subjects with type 2 diabetes
- To assess the effectiveness of Glucophage XR therapy on the maintenance of glycaemic control
The study does not involve any active involvement of the subjects and does not require any change from the standard medical management of the subjects. Each subject will be followed upon starting Glucophage XR therapy and until at least 12 weeks of treatment or discontinuation of treatment, whichever being earlier.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
