Byetta: Let’s Talk campaign

This press release is an announcement submitted by Byetta, and was not written by Diabetes Health.

Ask yourself: Do I know someone who consistently reaches for a donut over oatmeal, has a standing date with their TV instead of the gym or prefers high-calorie, high-fat fast food to healthy meals? If you answered yes, you may know someone who has type 2 diabetes or is at high risk for developing it.

In an effort to help Americans living with type 2 diabetes learn how to better manage their diabetes, the Byetta: Let’s Talk campaign is visiting ten cities across the U.S. this summer. The tour will feature:

  • Stage, screen and film actress Delta Burke discussing her experience living with type 2 diabetes. Ms. Burke was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 41 and has been living with the disease for more than 10 years.
  • The Diabetic Chef, Chris Smith, sharing and preparing healthy, delicious dishes.
  • Fitness instructor Nikki Kimbrough from Bally Total Fitness demonstrating easy, at home exercise options.
  • Certified diabetes educator, Virginia Valentine, discussing disease management and treatment.

The American Diabetes Association estimates that 20 million Americans live with diabetes and the majority of all people diagnosed with the disease have type 2 diabetes. Its vital to understand the importance of leading an active, healthy lifestyle and taking the right treatments, such as Byetta, to help manage this disease.
