The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if initiating treatment with BMS-51248 (Dapagliflozin) in combination with metformin XR can improve diabetes control in patients with Type 2 Diabetes who do not receive any pharmacological treatment for diabetes, when compared to initial treatment with monotherapy dapagliflozin or metformin XR. The safety of this treatment will also be studied
