Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas

In honor of National Diabetes Month, on Wednesday, in a lengthy post, Nick Jonas opened up about being diagnosed with diabetes when he was 13. He also revealed that he was “devastated” and has been battling for 16 years now.

Jonas shared a picture of himself on Instagram and penned a long caption, that read as: “In honor 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 pediatrician informed me that I had Type 1 diabetes. 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.”

“I’m also thankful to have the technology from @dexcom to know where my glucose numbers are headed in real-time. That added peace of mind really means a lot, and I’m spending more time in range than ever. Learn more about my diagnosis and journey as a Type 1 over at @beyondtype1,” he wrote.
