Jonas Brothers Band Member Reveals He Has Diabetes: Nick Jonas, age 14, hopes his story will inspire other kids with diabetes

Mar 13, 2007

This press release is an announcement submitted by Insulet Corporation, and was not written by Diabetes Health.

New York, New York - March 12, 2007 - About 1,000 people attending the Diabetes Research Institute’s Carnival for a Cure fundraising event in New York yesterday were treated to a live concert by the young pop rock band, the Jonas Brothers, and some surprising inspiration from one of the band members.

Nick Jonas, 14, who sings vocals and plays guitar and drums for the band, took center stage after the band’s opening song and asked for a show of hands of people in the audience, especially kids, who have diabetes. He then raised his own hand, acknowledging for the first time publicly that he has type 1 diabetes, a disease that results when the body does not produce the hormone insulin that is needed to convert sugar into energy.

Nick, who performs music around the country and in Europe with his older brothers Kevin, 19, and Joe, 17, told the families at New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion he was diagnosed while on tour in November 2005. Exhibiting the classic symptoms of the disease, he was thirsty all the time, lost a lot of weight, and was acting uncharacteristically moody. When his doctor told him his sugar level was 700, meaning he had diabetes, his first thought was that he might die

“I had an emotional breakdown since I really had no idea what diabetes was all about,” said Nick. “I wondered, ‘why me?’ Then I asked myself, ‘why not me?’ and realized that I might be able to help other kids with diabetes.”

Nick spent three days in the hospital learning how to manage his diabetes, including how to give himself insulin injections several times a day. The band’s busy tour schedule as a Disney Channel and teen and tween-aged pop rock band favorite, made managing his diabetes with injections a challenge.

After reviewing different insulin therapy options including conventional insulin pumps that deliver insulin via long tubing attached to a pump typically worn on the belt, Nick opted instead for a relatively new insulin delivery system called the OmniPod

Hey, just a couple of months ago it became my 10th year with diabetes and i'm 13. I thought its a shock at first, after you go to tons of those Walks to Cure Diabetes you realize that you not the only one. Even though your diabetic you'll still have friends bye your side at the end. And if your ever feeling low ( not blood suger low) Just remember there is always people that care about you. Always have HOPE!!!

As a mom of a 6 yr old Type 1 Diabetic. I give a high five for your courageous notion to announce that you have diabetes publicly. I believe you have people (other kids) that look up to you but for some it gives them a different outlook. For those with fear it gives them Hope.
Thank You

Nick,
I just want to say that after watching you admit that you have diabetes I didn't know what to say. But now I do. Nick I want to thank you for being an inspiration not only to me but to all of us living with diabetes. After I saw you raise your hand I no longer felt bad about it. The day after I watched it I walked into school feeling confident and I didn't feel like the freaky girl who had diabetes. Like I said thanks for being our inspiration to all of us living with diabetes. I'm now going to hold on and live life to the fullest and I owe it all to you. I love you Nick! (After I finished typing that sentence I started to cry.) Again Nick I truly do love you for helping through this tough time in my life.
Your loving diabetic fan,

I think its really great that you announced that you have diabetes. I know that that probably took a lot of courage. You are an inspiration to millions of people. I don't have diabetes myself, but i know that it must be a struggle to live with it. The fact that you have it and inspire so many others is amazing. Thank you for all that you've done. :)

Reading this story about Nick has really inspired me. I'm 17 and was diagnosed with diabetes on Dec. 7, 1999. So that means I have had diabetes for 8 yrs. know . It never gets easier so knowing that even rockstars has diabetes is cool to know. I am on insulin shots because the pump did't work for me, but I am glad it is working out great for Nick. Thnks a lot for sharing your story and I wish you all the best for you and your band. GOD BLESS you and your family:):)

Who ever is incharge of this website really should let Nick Jonas actually read these comments. He should know how many kids and people he has actually inspired with his story of his own struggle with being a diabetic. Thanks a lot and he should make up a summer camp for kids who have disbetes.

Hey Nick Don't ever let anyone tell you that you are different because you have diabetes. I always tell people that I am not any different than you, just my body reacts differntly to food than yours does. I am 10 yrs. old and I have had it since I was 6 yrs. old. My bloodsugar was 750 before we found out. Just remember God has a plan for all of us and there is a reason why we have diabetes. Be proud and be yourself.

My son Zachary who is 6 yrs. old was diagnosed with type 1 in April 2008 was very inspired and willing to learn more about diabetes once he read about Nick Jonas. I didn't even know the band existed. I cannot thank you enough for what you've done to help my son accept his knew way of life.

I've had diabetes since I was six months old and I'm fourteen now. It's not easy, I would know. My sister and my dad both have it too and it's not what people think it is. Diabetes is a terrible disease if you don't know how to control it. And you really do have to be a strong person to cope with it. Thank you for showing that you do have diabetes and you have most definitely inspired me

My cousin has type 2, and when he found out, it was a total shock. He went through a really hard time. I was a fan of JB back then (still am now), and he was like, Kasey, get that crappy CD away from me. When Little Bit Longer came out, I forced him to listen to it as we were driving to the mall. That song is now his inspiration, and so is Nick. Thank you, Nick, I love you, and so does my cousin.

I have diabetes type 1 too. When I told my boyfriend he became a bit scared. he was first like: OMG......OMG! but then he calmed down and said that he did'nt care if I had diabetes, cause he loves me. and I am a JB-fan, so I think that all fans ,and me, don't care if nick has diabetes, cause we love him. we don't like him cause he has diabetes, no! we love him cause he has diabetes! I just wanted to say that! thanx!

LOVE YA!

I'm Victoria and I'm 15.
I love Nick Jonas! He is my hero!
B4, I liked Zac Efron, but he can't sing so now I like Nick. Nick is 16, and Zac is 20, so Nick is better for me, ha, ha! Nick is a very cute guy, I love his lips! And his eyes! OMG, brown eyes is the most beautiful thing in the world! I love the hole Nick, by the way. I love that he is so sensitive, cause I am sensitive too. I cry when I see on sadly movies, for example. Nick has curly hair, and I have it too! I think we would be a very cute couple. What do you think? Plz comment!

Love, Nick Jonas is the best

First of All, I'm 14 and have had type 1 diabetes since I was five. I don't need inspiration. It's just something you get used to. And the whole emotional break-down thing, he probably just added that to his little bleeding heart story. It's not that bad. It's a pain in the butt, but it's not that bad. I have an insulin pump and an A1C of 7.4, and any of you diabetics out there know that that's good. So, Nick, why don't you just go take care of your own business, because we don't need your "inspiration."

My mom's friend gave me the diabetes necklace that you created "a little bit longer and I'll be fine". I am 12 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 3 years old. I wear an insulin pump. I am a member of the JDRF and paticipate in fundraising and the "walk to cure" every year. Thanks for coming out and telling your story. I does make us feel we are not alone. I am in 6th grade and am going to do my science expo on diabetes. Please keep in touch and let us know how things are going with your diabetes. Austin Cothron, St. Augustine FL
