Randy Jackson
Grammy Award-winning producer "Randy" Jackson (1956—) is well known as a judge on American Idol. In 2001 he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Weighing 355 pounds he was in "the worst shape of his life", he said, and was feeling extremely tired, thirsty, and feverish. Believing that he just had a cold, he delayed going to the doctor until he clearly couldn't put it off any longer.

He ended up in the emergency room with a blood sugar level of 500 (normal is 70-150)and an unequivocal diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes. After struggling to lose weight he had gastric bypass surgery in 2003 and lost 125 lbs, which helped reverse the diabetes to a great extent.

Health tip of the day:
If you have trouble getting cool in summer or if you sweat a lot during exercise, try using sandalwood oil as a splash on cologne. Sandalwood oil has cooling properties and is used in many Asian countries to cool the body when no air conditioning is available. It smells great and works as a natural coolant on the skin. It’s also great for acne, eczema and other skin problems that can be caused by sensitivity to heat. Regrettably, due to over cultivation in India, it's very difficult to find good quality sandalwood oil, unless you happen to visit the Mysore Provence in India or Dubai- where they sell all sorts of essential oils and fragrances.. Still, even diluted versions that can be found in the USA work pretty well to keep you cool in summer months. Try shops that sell incense or Indian goods, and if possible purchase the Mysore brand which regulated by the Indian Government and is the most pure oil available in most cases.
