Nick Jonas is on the cover of free magazine Diabetes Focus: ‘I was diagnosed at age 13 in November 2003. Although I had been having the usual symptoms, I lost weight, was always thirsty, had to go to the bathroom all the time and I was in a really, really bad mood all the time, I didn’t know what it all meant..
I announced that I had diabetes at the Carnival for a Cure at Miami’s prestigious Diabetes Research Institute. It seemed like the right time and place. I wanted to let kids know that the most important thing is to never ever let your yourself get down about having diabetes..
..because we can live a really great life as a kid with diabetes.. Kids would tell me how scared they were to tell their friends they had it, and how my going public really gave them the courage to do it. Thx Rosario!
