Nick Jonas said ‘I was devastated, frightened…’

Nick Jonas posted an Instagram post on Wednesday in honour of national diabetes month. Said he was diagnosed with it at the age of 13 and it was very scary and devastating.

Nick Jonas wrote, “In honour of National Diabetes Month, I’ve been recognizing #SeeDiabetes heroes on my story every day. Today resonates with me personally because it’s the 16th anniversary of my diagnosis. I was thirteen, playing shows with my brothers… And I knew in my gut that something wasn’t right, so I went to my parents and told them I needed to see the doctor. After going over my symptoms, my paediatrician informed me that I had Type 1 diabetes.”

He further wrote, “All the symptoms were in line with an undiagnosed Type 1. I was devastated – frightened… Did this mean my dream of touring the world and playing our music had to end? But I was committed, just like I always have been, to not letting it slow me down. There are tough days but I have an incredible support system I can rely on to help me push through and not be hard on myself when I’m feeling low.”
