Randy Jackson

Unlike many Americans who, sadly, don't make the lifestyle changes needed to control or prevent Type 2 diabetes, Jackson became a spokesperson for Merck pharmaceuticals to help raise awareness for the disease after successfully controlling it himself. When the Grammy-winning producer was diagnosed with high blood sugar in 2001, he was in "the worst shape of my life" at 360 lbs. After dropping 70 lbs. with the help of gastric bypass surgery, he now eats a sensible diet and checks his glucose levels daily.
