Brenda is known to be diagnosed with Diabetes. There was a time when she was taken to the emergency room and was found out to have a very high blood sugar. Luckily, she was able to cope up by eventually changing her lifestyle. She said in an interview, “I didn’t have time to sit around and feel sorry for myself because everyone’s waiting for a show. I had a show to write songs for, which was probably a good thing. Now I am in incredible condition. My doctors are so proud of me. It’s made me more conscious of what I put into my body, how I eat. I am taking really good care of myself. I am probably healthier now that I have ever been.”
She continued to express and elaborate, “The community definitely needs to know that if you have diabetes in your family, you must get your blood checked. Get your children checked, especially if there are weight issues. And it’s simple. Just a blood test. It’s really important because a lot of people can bypass the whole trip that I went through. And I know lots of people who are susceptible because they have it in their family and they do all the right things before it blows up on them. And they never cross that line into diabetes. You can ward it off with exercise and proper diet. There are plenty of people who do it.” You see, everyone can manage this disease by doing some healthy measures. But of course, prevention is still the best.
