LITTLE FALLS - Celebrity chef and Food Network star Paula Deen is teaming with New Jersey-based drugmaker Novo Nordisk to launch a program that aims to help people live with Type 2 diabetes and promote a Novo diabetes drug.

The program is called Diabetes in a New Light and offers tips on food preparation, stress management and working with doctors on a treatment plan.

Deen has Type 2 diabetes and takes Victoza, a once-daily noninsulin injection.

Type 2 is the most common form of diabetes. In Type 2 diabetes, the body either does not produce enough insulin or does not use it efficiently, allowing excess sugar, or glucose, to accumulate in the blood.
