American actor, Anthony Anderson is at the top of his game right now. Anthony is the star of the hit comedy-drama Black*ish with Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony’s on-screen wife and featuring Laurence Fishburne as his father.
The series story-line follows Anthony’s ‘family man’ character Andre (aka Dre) Johnson as he navigates a life where being black, successful, and too easily assimilated into current culture may have some drawbacks.
The show is seriously funny but recently, Black* ish turned to more serious episode topics including diabetes, a very important issue for the actor. You see, Anthony was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2002.
Diabetes Voice got a chance to speak with Anthony from his hotel in Chicago (where he’s busy filming a new movie) to talk about his journey with diabetes and why he’s such a serious advocate. Go to the interview.
IDF estimates that four million people living with diabetes are forcibly displaced as a result of man-made and natural disasters. In these difficult circumstances, people with diabetes often struggle to manage their condition and are at increased risk of disability and early death.
Hypoglycaemia presents a huge psychological burden for people with diabetes
International consortium aims to provide evidence-based classification of hypoglycaemia to achieve better treatments for people living with diabetes.
