BTB: Jane Wilkens Michael talks to Randy Jackson on Being Better than Before

Today Jane talks to Randy Jackson, a Grammy Award-winning producer, musician, songwriter, record-industry executive, business entrepreneur, best-selling author, talent manager, television producer and iconic television personality. In addition to his memorable thirteen years as a judge on American Idol, Randy has lent his unique talents to hit records by Smokey Robinson, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Madonna, to name a few. He has also lived in the Rock ‘n’ Roll world, recording and performing with legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Keith Richards, Bon Jovi, as well as countless others. All in all, he has over 1,000 gold and platinum plaques to his name, with collective sales exceeding 200 million copies. Nothing seemed beyond his reach. Yet, two decades ago, Type 2 Diabetes almost proved to be an overwhelming problem. Never one to suffer defeat, Randy has since become a tireless anti-diabetes advocate, striving to educate the public on the steps he has taken since his diagnosis, and what he continues to do to remain healthy. On the show, Randy tells listeners what those lifestyle changes are by sharing his personal health and fitness regimen and anti-stress techniques. Randy also emphasizes the importance of collaborating with your doctor to create a customized treatment plan to help combat illnesses to which those living with diabetes are more susceptible. To that end, he has teamed up with Colgate Total on an important campaign to increase education on oral hygiene and the relationship between diabetes and gum disease.
