Can type 2 diabetes go into remission?

Hackney Diabetes Centre is one of the first in the country to launch treatment aimed at putting type 2 diabetes into remission.

In London, there are an estimated 475,000 people who have been diagnosed with the disease - and the rate is increasing according to a recent City Hall report.

Najma Sufi, from Hackney, suffers from type 2 diabetes and is trialling the new approach to stop the development of her disease.

If the trial is successful, it could be rolled out by more NHS trusts.
