Della Reese

Actress and singer Della Reese was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after she blacked out alone at home and after experiencing dizziness during the taping of Touched by an Angel. She knew very little about the disease and claims there were no symptoms before the diagnosis, but later helped others learn about and manage the condition as a spokesman for the American Diabetes Association.
