As theGrio previously reported, Shepherd has type 2 diabetes and has used her diet to help improv her diagnosis. Opening up in an Instagram video in 2019, she told her fans that her sugar-free diet drastically changed her health, so much so that even her doctors were shocked with her numbers.
She explained at time: “Just got great news!!!! I am a type 2 diabetic [and] in 2016-2017 & 2018 my blood pressure was 142/80 & my A1C (which measures blood sugar for the past three months) was 6.6 and the doctor put me on #metformin … today my blood pressure is 117/78 & my A1C is 5.4 .”View this post on Instagram

“The doctor excitedly said ‘OHMYGOD what did you do? You’re not even prediabetic!'” she revealed. “I know these numbers are because I have been off #sugar since March 2018. When my son Jeffrey asked ‘Mommy if you die who’s going to be my bodyguard’ I knew I had to make lifestyle changes or I would die. I wanted to share this good news with you to say THANKYOU to each person who texted, posted and dm’d me encouragement throughout my road back to health.”
Shepherd also used the video to encourage other people who may struggle with their health, letting them know that there is a path to healing.
“You have people who love you and need you to be here,” she concluded. “Live for you! Live for them!”
