Mary Tyler Moore’s friends say she has lost her sight, according to magazine
Closer Magazine reports Mary Tyler Moore, beloved for the show in the 1970s that carried her name, is nearly blind after living for years with Type 1 diabetes.
She is reportedly very distressed over her condition.
Moore is 77-years-old. In her most recent biography, “Growing Up Again: Life, Loves, and Oh Yeah, Diabetes”, the actor explained how for years she neglected her health.
She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was in her thirties.
Dick Van Dyke, who played her husband on The Dick Van Dyke Show, told Closer Magazine: “She hasn’t been too well. She’s really having a battle with it, I’m sorry to say.”
Betty White, who played Sue Ann Nivens, on Mary Tyler Moore Show said most of Mary’s sight is now gone.
