Randy Jackson and the American Heart Association Educate Raleigh Area Residents About the Connection Between Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease
Date:3/17/2008

RALEIGH, N.C., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Randy Jackson, music industry veteran and TV personality, is coming to Raleigh to help raise awareness among the local community about type 2 diabetes and its connection to cardiovascular disease (CVD). Jackson partnered with the American Heart Association to speak on behalf of a national campaign, The Heart of Diabetes(TM), to help those living with type 2 diabetes manage the disease and reduce the risk of associated complications. More than 543,000 people in North Carolina have been diagnosed with diabetes; and according to estimates, two-thirds of them will die of CVD, such as heart attack or stroke.

"When I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I thought, 'Wow, I have a serious disease,'" Jackson said. "After taking a hard look at my life choices and lifestyle habits, I knew it was time to make a change to be healthier. I am now living proof that type 2 diabetes can be managed. There isn't a magic cure for the disease, and it's not always easy, but I believe everyone has the potential to take charge and manage the disease in his or her own way in order to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life."

Through the campaign's Web site, IKnowDiabetes.org, Jackson shares more of his story about living with type 2 diabetes and offers tips to help manage the disease. The Web site also features Janet Puryear, a local resident of Raleigh-Durham, who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes several years ago. Puryear was one of three individuals selected by the American Heart Association to appear in a public service announcement with Jackson, which aims to increase awareness about the link between type 2 diabetes and CVD, and encourage people living with the disease to work with their healthcare provider to find an appropriate treatment plan.

"Finding out that I had type 2 diabetes hit me like a ton of bricks because my father, mother, oldest brother, two aunts and six uncles passed away from complication
