She’s a Byetta user herself who has lost twenty pounds while on the medication.
The campaign is designed to educate people with type 2 diabetes about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how Byetta can help manage type 2 diabetes. Delta Burke, who has had type 2 diabetes for nearly ten years, will appear in select cities to talk with attendees, who will also have an opportunity to talk with a fitness expert, a chef, and a healthcare professional about diabetes management.
