The purpose of this study is to help answer the following questions:
- To test if taking LY2599506 for 12 weeks controls blood sugar better than taking placebo for 12 weeks.
- To evaluate the safety of LY2599506 in patients with diabetes.
- To determine if LY2599506 has the ability to control blood sugar in patients with diabetes.
- To determine how much LY2599506 should be given to patients.
- To determine if LY2599506 has an effect on a patient's weight.
The study design consists of 4 study periods: a screening period, a 4-week dose adjustment period, an 8 week treatment period, and a 4-week follow up period.

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.
