Delta Burke is Battling Diabetes with the Lets Talk Campaign

Actress Delta Burke was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the age of 41. Her goal is to get people talking about better management of diabetes. She is achieving that goal by leading the BYETTA Let’s Talk Campaign.

The BYETTA Let’s Talk Campaign has been designed towards teaching patients of type 2 diabetes the importance and benefits of leading a healthier, more active lifestyle. It also has a large focus on the role of medication in the management of diabetes.

The BYETTA (exenatide) injection is the debut medication of a new class of drugs called incretin mimetics. This new class of drugs are for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. BYETTA has many of the same effects as human incretin hormone glucagon. BYETTA improves blood sugar after eating through multiple effects that work in unison on the stomach, liver, pancreas and brain.

The BYETTA Let’s Talk Campaign will be traveling to 10 Cities across the United States. The targeted attendee would be patients suffering from type 2 diabetes and/or their caregivers. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak to chefs, health care professionals, fitness instructors and other’s with diabetes about diabetes management.

This is a great idea for getting the word out there on the best ways to control type 2 diabetes. The more you know about your illness the better prepared you are for battling it in the most effective way each and every day. Good Luck.
