“I’ve always thought of myself as a healthy person. I don’t have a sweet tooth, bihira din mag junk food, pero last year I found out na may type 2 diabetes na ako [I rarely eat junk food, but last year I found out that I have type 2 diabetes]. My parents and grandparents never had it,” he wrote.

The actor urged his followers not to ignore symptoms, emphasizing the importance of regular checkups.

“I just wish I got checked up earlier nung pre-diabetes pa. My advice – don’t ignore the symptoms (my main symptoms – always thirsty and urinating often) and get checked up regularly,” he added.
