In 2002, music producer and former American Idol judge Jackson was diagnosed with diabetes after experiencing “flu symptoms” that turned out to be high blood sugar. Even though his father was diabetic, Jackson says he never imagined it would happen to him. With gastric bypass surgery, he lost almost 100 pounds and has kept the weight off.
