  • Have been treated with rosiglitazone, pramlintide, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist within 3 months prior to screening
  • Are using or have used any of the following lipid-lowering medications: niacin preparations as a lipid-lowering medication and/or bile acid sequestrants within 90 days prior to screening
  • Local OAM restrictions: have any restrictions for cardiac, renal, and hepatic diseases in the local product regulations
  • Are taking, or have taken within 3 months before screening, prescription or over-the-counter medications to promote weight loss
  • Have had any episodes of severe hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, or hyperosmolar state/coma within 6 months prior to screening
  • Have had 1 or more episodes of ketoacidosis or hyperosmolar state/coma in the past 6 months

  • Have obvious clinical signs or symptoms of liver disease (excluding non-alcoholic fatty liver disease [NAFLD]), acute or any chronic hepatitis, non alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), or elevated liver enzyme measurements
  • Have had a blood transfusion or severe blood loss within 3 months prior to screening or have known hemoglobinopathy, hemolytic anemia or sickle cell anemia, or any other traits of hemoglobin abnormalities known to interfere with the measurement of HbA1c
  • Have active or untreated cancer, have been in remission from clinically significant cancer(other than basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer) for less than 5 years, or are at increased risk for developing cancer or a recurrence of cancer in the opinion of the investigator
  • Have known hypersensitivity or allergy to any of LY2605541 and insulin glargine or their excipients
  • Have pre proliferative and proliferative retinopathy, maculopathy requiring treatment or not clinically stable in the last 6 months, or participants with active changes in subjective eye symptoms as determined by the investigator if an eye exam has not been performed in the last 6 months
  • Are receiving chronic (lasting longer than 14 consecutive days) systemic glucocorticoid therapy (excluding topical, intranasal, intraocular, and inhaled preparations) or have received such therapy within the 8 weeks immediately preceding screening
  • Have fasting triglycerides greater than 400 mg/dL (4.5 mmol/L) at screening as determined by the central laboratory
  • Have an irregular sleep/wake cycle (for example, participants who sleep during the day and work during the night) in the investigator's opinion
