Paula Deen reveals diabetes diagnosis, teams with drugmaker
ATLANTA, GA (11ALIVE) — Food Network star and Savannah resident Paula Deen is teaming with drugmaker Novo Nordisk to launch a program that aims to help people live with Type 2 diabetes and promote a Novo diabetes drug.
The program is called Diabetes in a New Light and offers tips on food preparation, stress management and working with doctors on a treatment plan.
Deen has Type 2 diabetes and takes Victoza, a once-daily non-insulin drug. Type 2 is the most common form of diabetes, where the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use it efficiently, allowing excess glucose to accumulate in the blood.
