Despite their high profile, these celebrities are open about living with diabetes and the struggles they face in managing the condition.
In 2013, Tom Hanks revealed on the “Late Show” with David Letterman that he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. The star – known for playing the roles of Forest Gump, Woody from Toy Story, and FBI Agent Carl Hanratty, among others – blamed himself for developing the disease and says he ignored medical advice for years before discovering he had type 2 diabetes.
During his interview with Letterman, Hanks said, “I went to the doctor, and he said, ‘You know those high blood sugar numbers you’ve been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you’ve graduated! You’ve got type 2 diabetes, young man.''email''phone' href="">1-800-895-5921 Toll free in US
