What disease does Randy Jackson have?… – The US Sun

May 9th, 2022

FAMED media personality Randy Jackson made a one-time-only return to television.

When Randy appeared alongside Katy Perry, Paula Abdul, and the other American Idol alumni for the anniversary episode, fans grew concerned over his noticeable weight loss.


On May 2, 2022, former American Idol judge Randy Jackson stopped by the show to celebrate the program's anniversary.

On Monday night's commemorative special, several former judges and contestants joined the current roster to pay tribute to Idol.

While viewing the episode, a number of fans took to social media as they noticed Randy's thinner appearance.

On Twitter, one fan said: "Randy Jackson on American Idol Reunion looks so different is he okay? #AmericanIdol."

A second tweeted: "Randy Jackson looks too skinny. Paula looks the same. I miss the good old days."

"Randy Jackson got skinny omg," commented another viewer.

Another spectator tweeted: "Im sorry but Randy Jackson does not look like hes in good health."

Randy's thinner presence is attributed to his diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes.

The popular musician was diagnosed with the disease sometime in 2002.

In 2003, the music producer underwent gastric bypass surgery in order to keep his health on track.

Randy detailed his struggles with Type 2 Diabetes in his 2008 self-help book, Body With Soul.

The former Idol judge wrote: "It's a curse to be saddled with a disease that's life-threatening and that you can't completely get rid of, though you can certainly manage it."


"But it's a blessing to get that huge wake-up call."

He further wrote: "After that day in the ER, when my doctor burst the bubble I'd been living in, I couldn't lie to myself anymore."

"Right then and there, I began my journey toward better health."

The American Idol 20-year anniversary is not the first time Randy faced public concerns about his health.

During a January 2021 interview on The Today Show, he discussed his battle with diabetes and his dieting methods.

He told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager: "I started on this health regimen many years ago while I was on Idol. I think it was the second season."

"Lost a ton of weight, started gaining it back, then went on my own journey to try and discover 'How do I keep it off? What do I do?'"

Randy shared with the hosts that his dieting regimen "has been a long time coming."

His explanation on The Today Show echoed similar sentiments he expressed in Body With Soul.

The producer wrote: "Diets, liquid fasts, weight-loss medications, you name it, and none of them ever worked for long."

"But when I wound up in the hospital, I had to face up to why all those methods failed."
