Nick Jonas is featured in the newest issue of Us Weekly speaking about his 10 year journey with Type 1 Diabetes and showcasing the continuous glucose monitoring technology that makes his management easier.
Nick Jonas has diabetes. Jonas was 13 when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, about the same time the Jonas Brothers began to boom in the music industry. Siblings Joe and Kevin support different causes in their joint Change for the Children Foundation, but Nick focuses on diabetes.
Nick Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in November 2005, and offers this advise to anyone newly diagnosed, “Don’t let it slow you down at all. I made a promise to myself on the way to the hospital that I wouldn’t let this thing slow me down and I’d just keep moving forward, and that’s what I did. Just keep a positive attitude and keep moving forward with it. Don’t be discouraged."
