This meta-analysis explores the risk for severe hypoglycemia with Gla-300 versus Gla-100 in the pool of studied patients with T1D.

Study Design

The following patients with T1D were pooled in the present study:

  • EDITION 4 (n=549): adult patients (age ≥18 years), worldwide2
  • EDITION JP 1 (n=243): adult patients (age ≥18 years), Japan3
  • EDITION JUNIOR (n=463): children and adolescents (age 6−17 years), worldwide4


Previous Basal Insulin4


Gla-300 provides effective and similar glycemic control versus Gla-100 in patients with T1D

HbA1c reduction

LSM difference at week 26 (95% CI):

0.05% (-0.044 to 0.150)

Significant Lower percentage of patients with ≥1 Severe Hypoglycemic event with Gla-300 vs. Gla-100 from baseline to month 6 in pooled analysis


From baseline to month 6:

OR (95% CI): 0.65 (0.42 to 0.98)


  • Gla-300 showed a lower risk for severe hypoglycemia compared with Gla-100 in a broad spectrum of patients with T1D, especially during the titration phase.
  • Gla-300 provides effective and similar glycemic control versus Gla-100 in patients with T1D.
