Tom Hanks, Viola Davis, & 10 More Celebrities Who Live With Diabetes

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of your favorite celebrities are among the over 29 million people across the country living with diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition that occurs when your body loses the ability to control your blood glucose levels, or the amount of sugar in your blood. The most common types of the disease include prediabetes, gestational diabetes, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes, according to Mayo Clinic. Regardless of the type, however, each person’s experience with diabetes is unique. 

While some have kept their diagnoses more private than others, there are a few notable celebrities who have spoken publicly about their diabetes and how the disease affects them personally. For many, the effects of diabetes are comprehensive, from extreme weight fluctuation and irregular bladder movements to feelings of weakness and irritability. As a result, people diagnosed with diabetes often make key adjustments to their daily routines, such as managing stress or eating a diet rich in whole foods, to maintain a health-conscious lifestyle. 

Ahead, read what celebrities like Nick Jonas, Tom Hanks, and Halle Berry have said about their diabetes diagnoses and how they’ve learned to manage the disease alongside their high-profile careers.
