Tom made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, where he revealed his battle with Type 2 Diabetes.

“My doctor said, ‘Look, if you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school, you will essentially be completely healthy. You will not have Type 2 diabetes.’ And then I said to her, ‘Well, then, I’m gonna have Type 2 diabetes because there is no way I can weigh as much as I did in high school,” he said on the show.
