Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)Empagliflozin 10 mg is to be continuously administered once daily for 12 weeks. Measure an HbA1c level after 12 weeks and determine the dose (Week 13 to Week 24). In case of <7.0%, 10 mg will be continued: in case of >=7.0%, it will be increased to 25 mg.


Primary OutcomeHbA1c change at Week 24 of the treatment from baseline
Secondary Outcome(1)HbA1c change rate at Week 24 of the treatment from baseline (2)HbA1c change at Week 12 of the treatment from baseline (3)HbA1c over time (4)Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) over time (5)FPG change at Week 24 of the treatment from baseline (6)Change of insulin dose (TDD, TBD) (7) Postprandial glucose for 2 hours over time
