Surgery is not an easy fix
Hundreds of thousands of people with type 2 diabetes could be offered weight-loss gastric-band surgery on the NHS.
New draft guidance from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests that obese people with the condition should be assessed for bariatric surgery - such as having a gastric band fitted to reduce the size of the stomach or a gastric bypass, where the digestive system is re-routed past most of the stomach.
We speak to Dr Sarah Jarvis and Andy Reynolds, a type 2 diabetes sufferer, to find out more.

A hospital has launched an appeal to identify a man who cannot remember his own name. The man, who has been named Robert by doctors, was found in a park in Peterborough 50 days ago suffering from a severe case of amnesia.
Nearly two months since he was found there has been no improvement in his condition.
Robert said: "The last few weeks have been truly horrible. I go through so many different emotions. At times I am angry, frustrated, depressed, lost and confused. I just need to find out my name and I hope someone out there will recognise me and help."
