Sherri Shepherd

Type 2 diabetes has become a national epidemic, but it really hit home for Sherri Shepherd. The former View co-host lost her mother to the disease (she was just 41) and was diagnosed diabetic herself. But Shepherd managed to turn lemons to sugar-free lemonade, saying being diabetic has actually made her more conscious about her diet and exercise habits and keeps her from falling into obesity.
