Actor Paul Sorvino has his Oscar-winning daughter MIRA to thank for keeping his diabetes under control - she helps to cook his meals.
The Goodfellas star was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2006, and he quickly adapted his traditional Italian diet to include low-sugar, low-carbohydrate food.
And after witnessing her father suffer a terrifying hyperglycaemic attack, Mira decided to help him manage the condition by lending a hand in the kitchen.
She says, "After witnessing an episode of extremely high blood sugar and feeling like I didn't know what to do, I quickly realised I needed to learn as much as possible about diabetes and what I could do to support him."
Her father adds, "Living with diabetes, I know how important it is to have a support system in place. As part of our Italian family heritage, we love cooking meals together and Mira joins me in preparing low-carbohydrate pasta and salads full of diabetes-friendly ingredients, such as fresh vegetables and lean meats."
