According to reports, Nick Jonas got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 13 years old. Since then, he has become capable of taking good care of himself and he is able to detect whenever his body sugar is low. Diabetes is a condition in which the body is incapable of releasing the required amount of insulin and the patient has to take medication for the same. At first, Nick Jonas was a little bit scared and didn’t know how he would live with the disease.
However, eventually, he made a habit of taking insulin shots whenever his sugar got low and says that living with the disease is way easier than he thought. Priyanka Chopra Jonas told people.com on Tuesday that she used to wake up in the middle of the night just to check on Nick Jonas and to her surprise, he detects that his body sugar is low even when he is sleeping.
Priyanka said “He has been taking care of his diabetes since he was so young that he just has a crazy discipline about it. He knows exactly what to do when to do it. He lives the biggest life possible. He’s not restricted himself from anything. He plays sports, he’s touring — he lives an incredible life. It’s so inspiring to see”.
She further added “When he [started] Beyond Type 1, his foundation, that’s what he wanted to show people,” she added. “Even if you have Type 1 diabetes doesn’t mean that your life has to be different. You can live it to its fullest. It’s so inspiring to me”.
As mentioned in their article, Nick Jonas is living in peace with the disease since he was 13 years old and he knows how to take care of himself.
