Nick J ‘Most Famous’ Diabetes Spokesman

Nick-Jonas-diabetes-mine


Nick Jonas Diabetes Mine interview: ‘From day one, it was my call. I wanted to first be comfortable w/ it, then once I felt I was in a good place with my diabetes, I was ready to go out there and share it.’ What is it like to possibly be the most famous spokesperson for diabetes ever? ‘It’s hard to believe.

Actually, I don’t think of myself that way. I think I’m just another person out there living with diabetes. I am blessed to be able to connect with people who’ve just been diagnosed and offer them the comfort of knowing that someone else out there is also living with this thing and doing well with it. That gives me so much satisfaction!’ How can you tell that you’ve made a difference?

‘A lot of people come to me and say, ‘I was alone, and then I saw you also living diabetes and I didn’t feel so alone anymore.’ That’s a great thing! When I hear that, I tell them, ‘Keep your head up. It’s tough in the beginning. It can be over whelming, but it’s going to be all right. You can do anything you want with

diabetes.’ What about at your concerts? ‘Several times people will pull up their shirts to show their pumps on their bellies. In the beginning I was like, whoa! When they first start lifting up their shirts, you really don’t know what’s coming.. And when the really little ones come up and show their pumps, that’s so cute. The pump looks like it weighs a bit more than they do.’ Still a pumper?

Do you use a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) system? Still a pumper, yes. I have tried CGM, and I want to get back on it again. When I did, it was one of the first-generation devices, which was good, but a bit more difficult to use than I would have preferred. I have seen the new ones, and they look really powerful and useful, so I’m hoping to get on one of those soon. When the schedule

..gets crazy, we don’t lose sight of making sure my blood sugar is on track. It becomes even more important. Everyone’s on top of it, knowing what they need to do if a situation should arise.. A lot of our team has gone to diabetes

education classes and learned what to do for situations may become difficult.. I always keep apple juice on the side of the stage, always ready to go just in case. If I need it, I just give them the signal. a look and I point down. and they know what to do. My guitar tech walks out and gives me a quick apple juice.’

    I am glad he talks about his diabetes. It is a part of him and always will be. If he can use his game to help others, I will completely support anything he does for diabetes. He is an inspiration because I saw my friend almost give up on her life after being diagnosed with type 1. Seeing a kid like Nick getting up every day to fight his battle and live life to the fullest encouraged her and helped her understand that she is not alone.

    Diabetes is a big part of him and i really admire him. People that complain about him need to get a heart. He really is helping others. At least he doesn’t get on twittet and complain that his sugar is low, or his diabetes has him down. Never once has he done this, he is always upbeat and positive about his diabetes. What a great kid!

  • smilezbear

    He never fails to make me even prouder <3

  • BELIEVE, LOVE

    He doesn’t have to live with it forever… He can be free of diabetes whenever he chooses to. When People get told they have a disease or that they are sick they don’t have to own it. He doesn’t have to own that they told him he has diabetes. He doesn’t have to believe that he has diabetes. But his mind is programmed to believe it because the DOCTOR told him. He can Control his entire life buy loving and believing! He has the Power to choose wether he has diabetes or not. You may think Im crazy. And you may Believe so Much in your heart that I am wrong or that Im making this up but truth is Im revealing the Secret to Life. The Key and The Secret to Life is to LOVE and to BELIEVE!I HOPE that YOU all will Believe this… I KNOW Some of You will take this into consideration! And Im SO HAPPY For that!!! :))))) If you dont it is because you have been programmed for thousands of generations to BELIEVE otherwise… Even if you don’t BELIEVE in what I am saying… You are BELIEVING otherwise. SO either way you believe in something! When you Believe in Something, You have accepted it and there is no changing your mind and there is no negotiating. I truly HOPE that YOU Believe in What I am Saying! :)) I Thank GOD That I DO!

    Well not necessarily. He can’t just walk around pretending like he doesn’t have it either. Gladly, he can live with it but it is an issue and he can’t just be like a person without it unfortanetely.

    As a diabetic myself, it’s great to have a positive role model out there. Not once have I ever heard Nick complain about his diabetes. You never see him on twitter complain about not feeling good or having an off day. But as a diabetic, I know he has off days. Probably lots of them.

    He chooses to remain positive and that’s refreshing. When I’m having a bad day all I need to do is look to him as an example and it almost always cheers me up. Thanks Nick.
