Laraine Gibson asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Has there been any new research in type 2 diabetes?

Praying for a cure!

I am not sure that surgery is better for you than insulin...
There are some hints that some forms of weight loss surgery like gastric banding or having part of the intestine bypassed can put diabetes into remission, for some people.

See, for example: http://www.abc.net.au/health/thepulse/stories/2014/01/21/3926652.htm
