In his recent post on Instagram, Nick Jonas talked about his battle with type 1 diabetes with a picture from 2005 taken a few weeks before his diagnosis placed alongside a current picture of the 26-year-old singer. 

Jonas spoke about how he barely weighed 100 pounds due to the high sugar levels. Talking about the present situation the singer said he was ‘happy and healthy’. He said that he is now prioritising his health by eating right, working out and keeping a regular check on sugar levels.



13 years ago today I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The picture on the left is me a few weeks after my diagnosis. Barely 100 pounds after having lost so much weight from my blood sugar being so high before going to the doctor where I would find out I was diabetic. On the right is me now. Happy and healthy. Prioritizing my physical health, working out and eating healthy and keeping my blood sugar in check. I have full control of my day to day life with this disease, and I’m so grateful to my family and loved ones who have helped me every step of the way. Never let anything hold you back from living your best life. Thank you to all my fans for your kind words and support. Means more than you know. Love you all. #grateful #diabetes #livebeyond #fbf

He co-founded Beyond Type 1 in 2015 to spread awareness about the autoimmune condition and to empower those affected by the disease. In his post, he encouraged his fans to live the best life and never let anything stop them from doing so. 

Priyanka Chopra left a supportive comment on her fiancé’s picture saying how special he was, saying ‘with or without diabetes’.
