Nick Jonas has always been very open about his diabetes, in an effort to make sure everyone else diagnosed with the condition gets the information and motivation that they need. We recently caught up with the singer, and he shared how he makes sure to keep himself at his healthiest when he's at his busiest.
"You truly can achieve your dreams even with a condition such as diabetes," Nick tells TWIST exclusively. "I have a great support system of friends and family but I also have a tool that is like a best friend that’s always looking out for me, my continuous glucose monitor from Dexcom. It gives me my glucose readings every five minutes right on my smartphone so I always know where I’m heading. It sits right under my skin and I can barely tell it's there. That tool singlehandedly helps me live the life I love even with a busy, hectic schedule."
In addition to monitoring his levels, Nick makes sure to always have healthy snacks packed with him wherever he goes – especially when he's out on the road.
"Nuts are always good backstage, vegetables, and things like that," he shares. "[I'm always] keeping it low carb and just trying to be as healthy as possible."
Those are yummy additions to any diet!
