‘IDOL’S’ RANDY SAYS CONTROL YOUR DIABETES September 24, 2008

American Idol” judge Randy Jackson is again teaming up with the American Heart Association to encourage people with type 2 diabetes to enroll in The Heart of Diabetes campaign.       

       The effort provides educational information and tools for people with type 2 diabetes to better manage their disease. Only 7.3 percent of those who have the disease achieve blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol treatment goals.      

       As one who has lived with type 2 diabetes for years, Jackson will travel throughout the U.S. to urge the more than 21 million adults with diabetes to work with their healthcare providers, develop a comprehensive plan to achieve their treatment goals and ultimately improve their management of type 2 diabetes.       

       “I know first hand the impact this difficult disease can have on someone’s life,” Jackson said. “That’s why I’m encouraging folks to log onto IKnowDiabetes.org and enroll in The Heart of Diabetes program. When they enroll, they will learn more about how I personally manage type 2 diabetes and get some great educational information and tools to help them manage their disease more successfully
