Mr. Divabetic talks about embracing people with diabetes heath-related complications with musical inspiration from Della Reese.

According to Radar Online, Della Reese has had serious complications from type-2 diabetes. The famed gospel and jazz singer has even admitted the bouts she’s faced with diabetes have been life-threatening. “My life is at stake,” she said. “I don’t have type 2 diabetes – type 2 diabetes has me.”

In 2000, Della was officially diagnosed with diabetes after collapsing on the set of the hit TV show “Touched By An Angel”. Since then, she’s battled with her health to fight against wheelchair confinement. Her rep claims she’s still able to walk and refuses to be confined. At this point, let’s just hope she continues to fight like we know she can.

Guests include Diabetes Diabetes Alert Dog Trainer and Author from Chilbrook Kennels, Debby Kay, Central Farm Markets Co-Founder, Debra Moser, Master Hairstylist Karline Ricketts, the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach, Poet Lorraine Brooks and Mama Rose Marie.

Throughout the podcast we will be featuring selected songs from Della Reese’s albums courtesy of SONY Music.

Diabetes Late Nite is a fast-paced, full-filled hour of diabetes education and wellness advice that encourages listeners to “laugh a little, learn a lot.”
