What do Drew Carey, Halle Berry, Tracy Morgan, and Tom Hanks have in common? They’re all actors, and they all have Type 2 diabetes.

Hanks just recently revealed that he’s living with Type 2 diabetes while appearing on “The Late Show with David Letterman” earlier this week. He said that after dealing with high blood sugar for 20 years, the doctor told him he had “graduated” to Type 2 diabetes. Thankfully the disease can be controlled with diet and exercise. Hanks’ doctor suggested weight loss to bring him back to healthy, but the actor said that wouldn’t be possible.

“My doctor said, ‘Look, if you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school, you will essentially be completely healthy. You will not have Type 2 diabetes.’ And then I said to her, ‘Well, then, I’m gonna have Type 2 diabetes, because there is no way I can weigh as much as I did in high school,'” said Hanks on the show. Hanks then told Letterman that he weighed 96 pounds in high school.

While Hanks was lighthearted about his diagnosis on the show, hopefully the award-winning actor will seriously look into a change of diet. A plant-based one, perhaps?
