Aida Reveals Her Diabetes Battle

THE SOPRANOS star AIDA TURTURRO has revealed she's battling diabetes.

The actress sister of movie star JOHN TURTURRO has opened up about the disease in the hope her fame will help others who are suffering.

Turturro, 41, has kept the affliction a secret for the past four years - after she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

She says, "I do have a family history of it, but I was still surprised by the actual diagnosis.

"I've learned to manage my diabetes through proper exercise and diet and I'm committed to raising awareness about it."

Turturro isn't the only star who suffers from diabetes, which affects the body's ability to regulate blood-sugar levels - singer PATTI LABELLE and HALLE BERRY both have the condition.
