Disney Channel will air a diabetes related episode in late September after reviewing the content with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Hannah Montana episode on diabetes will air on Disney Channel on September 20th.

According to NY Daily News "The episode revolves around Miley (Miley Cyrus) and Lilly (Emily Osment) reacting to the knowledge that Oliver (Mitchel Musso) has been diagnosed with Type I diabetes. The pair then turn into food police at a sweet 16 party, to keep Oliver away from certain foods. Eventually, Oliver puts them at ease: together they - and he - can work through the challenge of diabetes. The segment ends with a feel-good message."

Disney channel tried very hard in its attempt of promoting the show. Perhaps they wanted to make it either more interesting or simply raising awareness about Juvenile Diabetes. Channel officials had even enlisted Nick Jonas, who also has diabetes, to star in a public services announcement to air with the show.

Hanna Montana diabetes episode was schedules to appear last year in November on Disney Channel. Officials had said that the content was reviewed during the scriptwriting process and approved for accuracy.

Later, Disney officials found some issues with the content. That episode was pulled out without notice despite being available in early versions through video on demand.

Now Disney Channel says it has reviewed it with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and will air it on September 20th at 7:30 PM.
