Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of two doses (high and low) of empagliflozin as add-on therapy to metformin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and insufficient glycaemic control. Both doses may be given once daily or split to a twice daily dosage. This results in 4 different dosage regimens of empagliflozin (high dose once daily or split vs. low dose once daily or split). This is done to evaluate whether a twice daily dose regimen of empagliflozin results in a loss of efficacy relative to once daily dosing when given on top of metformin background therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemoglobin) Change From Baseline at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 16 weeks ]

    Change from baseline in HbA1c (%) after 16 weeks of treatment. The term 'baseline' refers to the last observation prior to the first intake of any randomised study medication.

    Means provided are the adjusted means.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) Change From Baseline at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 16 weeks ]

    Change from baseline in FPG (mg/dL) after 16 weeks of treatment. The term 'baseline' refers to the last observation prior to the first intake of any randomised study medication.

    Means provided are the adjusted means.
