Nick Jonas Almost Went Into a Coma Before Being Diagnosed with Diabetes

October 2, 2019

NICK JONAS was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 13 . . . and he almost found out about it the hard way.

He was losing weight and had developed a huge craving for soda . . . so his parents took him to the doctor.  They measured his blood sugar, and it was NINE TIMES higher than normal.

He says, quote, "I was very close to a coma.  Like a day away, if I hadn't gone to the hospital."

He adds, quote, "I was very scared . . . it's a big life change.  [But] I found out very quickly it's a very manageable disease.  As long as you're really diligent."
