Surgery 'needs to triple' for obese diabetic patients

The number of obese patients with Type 2 diabetes having drastic weight loss surgery needs to triple over the next few years in order to help the NHS combat the rising caseload caused by sick people with poor diets.

In a U-turn on guidance, the National Institute for Care and Excellence (Nice) said moved away from encouraging doctors to look at gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy surgery as "a last resort". Instead, the want an estimated two million people in England to be considered for the £6,000 operation.
