In 1972, Furst's father died from diabetic complications and Furst was diagnosed with diabetes. One of his sisters has also been diagnosed diabetic and is now blind, confined to a wheelchair and dependent on oxygen. After almost having to have his left foot amputated due to diabetes complications in 1996, Furst lost nearly 150 pounds (68 kg) in the time between the third and fourth seasons of Babylon 5. When filming started for the fourth season, the show's producers found that all of the costumes were now too large for Furst. His weight loss is easily visible in the later seasons of Babylon 5. This weight loss had not been explained within the context of the Vir Cotto character. He wrote the book Confessions of a Couch Potato about his weight loss and diabetes, and co-wrote and directed a video called Diabetes For Guys, an attempt to educate about good diabetic control through humor. 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ...
