(WHAS11) – She is known for her recipes full of buttery goodness but TV chef Paula Deen is now coming clean about her fight against diabetes.
Deen says she was diagnosed with Type II diabetes about three years ago but decided to keep it a secret. She says it had nothing to do with her career but rather because she knew very little about the disease.
She is now launching a new campaign called "Diabetes in a New Light." It is sponsored by a company that makes diabetes medications, which Deen uses.
