Nick Jonas opens up about being diagnosed with diabetes, Priyanka reacts
Nick Jonas, now 29, was just 13 years old when he was diagnosed with diabetes, which he has battled for the past 16 years.
In a lengthy Instagram post posted on Wednesday, singer Nick Jonas revealed that he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a youngster.
Taking to his Instagram handle Nick Jonas wrote: “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. All the symptoms were in line with an undiagnosed Type 1.”
He continued and recalls how heartbroken he felt as a 13-year-old, “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.” Nick also opened up about his ‘incredible support system’ and said: “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.”
