Any dedicated Jonas Brothers fan knows that Nick Jonas has diabetes, and he has been very vocal about his experiences since he was diagnosed in the hopes of raising awareness about the medical condition. The singer found out about his own Type 1 diabetes when he was 13, so when he saw that fitness brand CrossFit recently tweeted out an insensitive joke about the disease, he took to his own Twitter to set the record straight.
Type 1 diabetes like Nick's is usually diagnosed in kids, and it happens when the pancreas produces little to no blood sugar-regulating insulin. You can't develop it by drinking too much Coke, as CrossFit suggests in their tweet. Type 2 diabetes is different, as it can develop as the result of a poor diet – but it's nothing to be made fun of or joked about!
