Nick Jonas: Livin' the Dream Despite Diabetes
Date:8/25/2009

don't give themselves too much insulin, because that can cause low blood sugar levels, which can also be dangerous.

Of Jonas, Gungor said, "He's a role model for all our youngsters and he proves that a person with diabetes can still do a very good job in his profession." But, she added, that to perform at his best, Jonas must check his blood sugar frequently and stick closely to an appropriate meal plan that includes protein and healthy carbohydrates to keep his glucose levels more consistent.

Jonas appears to be managing his diabetes well. The band is just finishing a major U.S. tour, and then is filming a sequel to its popular Camp Rock movie before heading to Europe for an eight-country tour. The band also started a charity called Change for the Children to help youngsters with diabetes and other needs. On his own, Jonas has recently testified before Congress to lobby for support for diabetes research, met President Barack Obama, and is serving as a diabetes ambassador for Bayer Diabetes Care.

For those who've just received the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, he advised, "If you're independent, don't be afraid to rely on other people with your struggles. Diabetes doesn't just affect the individual, but also the family around them. They can help you get through it."

Jonas said there are definitely times he wishes he could just be "normal" and not have diabetes for at least a day (or longer), but that he really looks forward to the moments when he hears "that there are people out there who have been encouraged by my story" or by the song he wrote about having diabetes, A Little Bit Longer.

"I always try to be on top of it," Jonas said of his diabetes, "so I can do what I want in life and I can live my dream."
