Tom Hanks Diabetes Announcement
In a surprise announcement, Tom Hanks, 57, revealed on the Late Show with David Letterman that he has diabetes. While on the show to promote his new film Captain Phillips, he told Letterman that he learned at age 36 that he had high blood sugar. Recently his doctor told him: "You've graduated. You've got type 2 diabetes, young man." Hanks said the doctor also told him that if he could return to his high school weight, he'd be "completely healthy" and avoid type 2 diabetes. Hanks replied: "Then I'm going to have type 2 diabetes." He joked he weighed about 98 pounds in high school.
