A new report from the daily mail reports that famous James Bond actor Roger Moore has removed all alcoholic cocktails from his diet following a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Moore, who starred as James Bond in seven iconic flicks, was diagnosed with diabetes last year at age 85 after collapsing at his home in Monaco. Moore was rushed to the hospital where doctors confirmed his chronic high blood sugars had evolved into full-fledged diabetes.

The martini cocktail, famously ordered by Sean Connery in the movie ‘Goldfinger’ and iconically ordered as ‘shaken not stirred’, is made from a combination of gin and vermouth. These ingredients are both high in sugar, and make it very difficult for patients with diabetes to control their blood glucose levels. In an interview, Sir Roger Moore stated, “I make a very good dry martini but I’m not allowed to drink them anymore. No more sugar, no alcohol…I enjoy it much more”. 

Following his diagnosis Moore will have to adventure into a whole new world of personal– as diabetes will affect not only his martini intake, but also his overall health. Severe diabetics can develop peripheral neuropathy which can even lead to amputations in some cases. At Crofton Podiatry we see a multitude of patients whose foot health has been directly affected by their diabetic control.

We cannot stress the importance of diet, regular exercise, and overall health monitoring in protecting the quality of your feet. Proper diabetic foot care and protection may include custom extra depth shoes and proper nail care which may be done by your podiatrist every nine weeks or so. In a world where the phrase, ‘You only live twice’ isn’t even true for James Bond, it is ever important that we remain vigilant about our health!
