Exclusion Criteria: - Currently taking or have taken within 3 months prior to screening an approved or investigational GLP-1 analogue/agonist (e.g., Victoza®) or pramlintide; - Currently taking or have routinely taken, within 3 months prior to screening , a short-acting insulin; - Currently taking or have taken, within 3 months prior to screening, a long acting insulin other than Lantus®; - Known allergy to, or serious adverse effect caused by an approved, or investigational insulin product or any of its components; - Currently taking any of the following medications: thiazide or furosemide diuretics, beta-blockers, estrogens or other hormonal replacement therapy, or other chronic medications with known adverse effects on glucose tolerance levels unless the subject has been on stable doses of such agents for at least 2 months prior to screening and have no planned changes during the study period; - History of recurrent severe hypoglycemia (more than 2 episodes within the last 6 months prior to randomization or hypoglycemic unawareness; - Malignant disease defined as 1) any history of malignant melanoma or breast cancer and/or 2) history of other types of cancer within the last 5 years prior to screening; - Unstable cardiovascular disease defined as one or more of the following: History of stroke, transient ischemic attack, or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to screening; History of or currently have New York Heart Association Class III-IV heart failure prior to screening; Uncontrolled/sustained hypertension; History or evidence of long QT syndrome or mean triplicate 12-lead electrocardiogram demonstrating QT interval; - Clinically significant renal and/or hepatic dysfunction; - Absolute requirement for corticosteroids or have received systemic steroids within 3 months prior to Randomization (V5, Day -1).
