    You should meet my dad. He's 80 and diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic three years ago. Even though he didn't eat Paula Deen fried/buttery type food beforehand, he was into the cakes, pies and cookies. He's cut out sweets of all kinds, cut down on breads and starches, and upped his exercise -- he used to walk 2-3 km per day, now he walks 10 km per day rain or shine or snow. His A1C at diagnosis was 19.something but it's ranged from 4.9 to 5.1 over the last 3 years (and he insists that his doctor give him copies of the lab reports to prove it! ).

    Yeah, 5.3 is pretty low for a type-1. My lowest ever was 6 and I had switched over to a whole foods diet and really struggled with low blood sugar for a while there.

    And, as a type-1 diabetic, I have no real issue with Bret Michaels. I think he's kind of ridiculous in a lot of ways but I haven't noticed anything about his management that irritated me. He's had a lot of awful health issues but none of them, from what I could see, related to poor diabetes management - just really, really bad luck.

    Is Guy Fieri a diabetic?

    Didn't watch Rock of Love and its sordid spin-offs? Good call, that.

    That was a reality show. We all know how real reality shows are.

    It's getting pretty real for Big Brother contestants - the first person hasn't even been voted off yet, and one has lost a modelling contract and another has lost her job due to their racist remarks on the live feeds. And they're oblivious to what's going on outside the game.

    So it was all fake when we saw Bret sucking down a fifth of Jack every night before shoving his tongue down the throats of two-dozen porn stars adorned with cold sores, including one who humps pizzas? Good. I was afraid there about his compromised immune system and whatnot.

    I'm not sure. I wasn't there, and I obviously wasn't as much a fan of the show as you were... But for all we know, that wasn't jack in the bottle. And the porn stars might have all been tested beforehand. But since when does making out with skanky women compromise ones diabetes? The jack I can give you...if it was, in fact, jack. I'm just REALLY skeptical when it comes to the realness of reality TV.

    Plus we're talking about a deposition so the facts were known from the get go.

    But it is interesting to see people twist what is going on to fit their own agendas. On my FB feed I've got one raving about the liberal media and dead babies. Yeah, don't ask what Paula Deen's racist behavior has to do with abortion. I don't get it either.

    Oh and my A1c is 5.2. Not that that has anything to do with anything. I just felt like posting it.

    I'm not defending Paula, but our society seems to love to tear down those who have made good. We revere them first, then resent them and drag them down.

    Do people even take celebrity endorsements seriously? (Especially when it comes to medications...)

    Depends pays a couple of celebrities to wear depends under their tight fitting outfits to prove that their new design shows no VDL (Visible Depends Lines). DWTS Cheryl Burke has done advertisements for them also.

    Well people buy stuffs from TV infomercials so why wouldn't some of them buy celebrity endorsed products. Never under estimate the gullibility (and often stupidity) of your fellow human beings.
