Tom Hanks Tells David Letterman That He Has Type 2 Diabetes
During the show on Monday night (October 7th, 2013) to promote his new film “Captain Phillips,” Tom made us smile while describing the conversation between him and his physician. His doctor told him that he had moved from a prediabetic state to having the disease.
“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,’ ” Hanks told Letterman. ” ‘You’ve got Type 2 diabetes, young man.’ “
The full story from CNN goes into detail on what Type 2 diabetes can do to your health.
Tom said it’s manageable and we wish Tom all the best.
