(NEW YORK) — The View co-host Sherri Shepherd is speaking out about her personal struggle with diabetes in her new book, Plan D: How To Lose Weight And Beat Diabetes.
Speaking to Good Morning America, Shepherd says that even though many of her relatives have the disease and she saw her mother die from diabetes at the age of 41, she developed a desire to become healthy for her son Jeffrey, who was 2 years old when she was diagnosed.
