Type 2 diabetes is usually a weight gain... have you got a Lloyds pharmacy near you? They do free diabetes testing. x

I hope you manage to get all this sorted out. Have they actually said that you don't meet the criteria? Write everything down and send it off to the PCT, you never know it might help your case.

I do not live in the area where my GP is, and infact the area where I live comes under a different PCT. My own Borough are well known for not funding WLS or having unrealistic (hard to reach) criteria for WLS.

However, although the funding PCT did mention that I did not live in their area, they could do nothing about it as my GP is under their PCT and they could not force me to change GP. May be worth changing GP's to a funding area ((???)) just a thought.
