During an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, actor Tom Hanks revealed he has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. 

"I went to the doctor and he said, 'You know those high blood sugar numbers you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you graduated! You've got Type 2 diabetes, young man." 

Baylor Endocrine Center's Dr. Erin Roe stopped by the WFAA studios on Tuesday to discuss treating diabetes and what can contribute to a diagnosis.
