Randy Jackson Takes Aim at Diabetes
Date:10/4/2007

iently, sugar levels build up in the bloodstream. These high sugar levels are the condition called diabetes, and high glucose levels in the bloodstream increase the risk for heart disease, Clement said.

Jackson's symptoms of fatigue and dehydration are very typical of people who have diabetes, Clement said, adding that blurred vision can be another common complaint of undiagnosed diabetes. Tests showing a high blood sugar level, high blood pressure and a cholesterol profile that includes a high triglyceride count and a low HDL count can indicate diabetes.

Jackson said that after his diagnosis, "the hardest thing to change was what I grew up with in Baton Rouge, Louisiana -- southern cooking."

All the sweet foods he loves and southern classic dishes like gumbo are no longer part of his diet, replaced with healthier food and a treadmill in his bedroom.

"I need to see the treadmill in my bedroom so I can stumble over to it," he quipped.

But Jackson urges everyone with diabetes to go at their own pace to improve their health -- and not get discouraged.

"The thing about being overweight is that you don't really want to work out, so I tell people, 'Just walk around the block 12 times,' " he said.
