Tom Hanks Has Diabetes & His Doctor Told Him That He Could Cure Himself

The rate of diabetes in the Latino community is growing so fast that almost everyone could name someone who has the disease. It’s a scary thing how common this disease spreads and it’s not even contagious! The only thing contagious about this disease is the lifestyle that people share, which often leads to diabetes. In a recent interview, Tom Hanks calls himself an idiot for having a poor diet, which he says led to his development of type 2 diabetes.Tom Hanks

“I’m part of the lazy American generation that has blindly kept dancing through the party and now finds ourselves with a malady,” said Hanks to Radio Times. “I was heavy. You’ve seen me in movies; you know what I looked like. I was a total idiot.”

According to Hank’s doctor, he might be able to cure himself if he loses weight. “My doctor says if I can hit a target weight, I will not have type 2 diabetes anymore,” he says.

Is this possible?
