Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
There’s a good chance you know at least one song by the Jonas Brothers, or perhaps you’re more familiar with singer Nick Jonas’s solo work. But you may not know that Jonas is diabetic. Nick was diagnosed more than 13 years ago, and it’s been a roller coaster for him figuring out how to stay healthy and keep his condition under control. The type of diabetes Nick has, Type 1, is often referred to as juvenile diabetes, since most cases are diagnosed in childhood. Jonas’s body isn’t capable of regulating his blood sugar levels, as his pancreas doesn’t produce insulin. Today, Nick stays healthy with a good diet, regular exercise, and insulin therapy.
