The curtain is coming down on the final season of the hit Fox show American Idol. One of the show’s original judges, Randy Jackson, is a celebrity who had to learn to manage type 2 diabetes, diagnosed in his forties. Randy used his celebrity status to bring awareness to the disease and some best practices for managing it. In a past issue of MedLine, Randy states:
"I know first hand what it's like to live with the disease and how it affects your life," he says. "This is why it's so important for me to get the word out about type 2 diabetes and its connection with cardiovascular disease."Randy developed relationships with several entities from websites to drug companies to promote healthy habits, and he backed up his advocacy with a personal commitment to change his own diet and exercise habits. Randy reportedly lost about 100 pounds, committed to exercise and diet changes, and let the public follow his story along the way. As with any treatment regimen, be sure to discuss the best management options with your healthcare provider. Though the final act for diabetes may be years away PlanetRx.com is committed to helping you live your healthiest life.
