Nick Jonas opens up about living with diabetes

Nick Jonas has been living with type 1 diabetes since 2005, and he opened up about the impact it’s had on his life

“13 years ago today I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes,” he wrote on Instagram. “The picture on the left is me a few weeks after my diagnosis. Barely 100 pounds after having lost so much weight from my blood sugar being so high before going to the doctor where I would find out I was diabetic. On the right is me now. Happy and healthy. Prioritizing my physical health, working out and eating healthy and keeping my blood sugar in check. I have full control of my day to day life with this disease, and I’m so grateful to my family and loved ones who have helped me every step of the way.”

“Never let anything hold you back from living your best life. Thank you to all my fans for your kind words and support. Means more than you know. Love you all,” he said.

Making the post even sweeter- his fiancé, Priyanka Chopra commented saying, “Everything about you is special. With or without diabetes”
