Veteran Nollywood thespain Bruno Iwuoha has opened up on his current state of health and his frantic fight with a life threatening ailment, the actor said this as a guest on a radio station in Abuja recently .

Bruno said he is currently battling diabetes and Glaucoma for years without enough financial capability to get appropriate medicare and corrective surgery.

The soft spoken actor who said diabetes has claimed his sight told the host of ‘Brekete Family Program on 104.5FM in Abuja that he never knew he had diabetes until a violent armed robbery attack that landed him in hospital.

A series of test carried out on him revealed that he has diabetes and since then he has been managing it until the condition affected his sight.

Hear him:

“I’ve gone to so many places; within the country, outside the country for treatment, until finally…finally, the thing [diabetes] claimed one of my sight. As I look at you now, I’m using only one sight. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one [eye]. So, naim make, apart from places…the people who call me atimes, both the little cash they can give me…drugs and all that…but I discovered that this thing [the illness] is a lifetime something.

And it has robbed me of the job [acting]. And now, if I get a script, it will be hard for me to read it very well. And if I read it, if I strain my eyes for so long, it would look as if someone would lead me around the house or anywhere I want to go because it will affect the only one [eye]. So that’s my problem.”
