Paula Deen Suffers from Easily Curable Diabetes

Popular Food Network host Paula Deen recently made national headlines when she revealed that she has been living with type-2 diabetes and has made a deal to promote the diabetes drug, Victoza. In writing this article, I have been watching some of her past cooking shows online, and to me she appears to be very warm, friendly, and grandmotherly. Her personality is similar to that of thousands of patients I have gotten to know throughout my medical career. Not coincidentally, however, her obesity and type-2 diabetes are as commonplace as her cooking style.

The ingredients that Paula Deen uses are the very same ones used by other chefs on various cooking channels. For less then $5 and a few minutes spent in a drive-thru, you can buy Deen-style dishes at any fast food restaurant. What could be more fattening and diabetogenic (causing diabetes) than a Wendy’s Baconator Double with two quarter-pound patties topped with juicy bacon in between a toasted and buttered bun, topped off with mayo, ketchup, and American cheese?
