Patte Labelle says you can win against Diabetes

Patti LaBelle
Thirteen years ago, R&B legend Patti LaBelle passed out onstage during a concert. Soon after, the double Grammy Award winner was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and it was a wake-up call for changing her life.

LaBelle lost her own mother to diabetes amputation complications. She recently became a spokeswoman to advocate diabetes awareness and better monitoring of glucose. LaBelle says she controls her diabetes with medication and exercise, including swimming and walking -- in addition to eating lots of vegetables.
