Type 2 diabetes patients could get gastric bands

Surgery is not an easy fix

– Andy Reynolds

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New draft guidance from the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests that obese people with the condition should be assessed for bariatric surgery - such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.

Laura's weather blog: Will there be a heat wave?

A mixed week of weather continues into the weekend.

High pressure close by gave a settled start to the week with a few scattered
showers. As it retreated it allowed the showers to grow bigger and more intense.

Tuesday more than half the UK experienced heavy showers, some torrential
with hail and thunder. There was a massive one over my house, I sat in the
conservatory, the hail was so loud crashing on the roof, it was no surprise to hear reports of flooding.

Can you identify mysterious amnesia man?

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."
