There are a lot of ways to protect yourself from Type-2 diabetes — and a clean diet and regular exercise are a good place to start. Unfortunately, Tom Hanks didn’t heed these warnings in his youth. Tom tells Today that his unhealthy lifestyle choices led to his diagnosis, which he’s had since at least 2013. He says small changes, like taking the buns off his hamburger, weren’t enough to avoid the disease altogether. But he seems more aware of what he needs to do for his body, so things are looking up.
