I was very close to coma, reveals Nick Jonas

Priyanka Chopra’s husband and singer-composer Nick Jonas revealed that he was very close to slipping into coma a day before diabetes diagnosis.

His blood sugar levels were nine times higher than normal. “I was very close to coma. Like a day away, if I hadn’t gone to the hospital,” People quoted Jonas as saying.

“I kept asking my parents -- am I going to be okay? I was just so concerned that it was going to limit my ability to do all the things I wanted to do. I was very scared -- it’s a big life change,” the 27-year-old continued.

However, after all the fright, Nick understood that his problem was “manageable” and said, “I found out very quickly it’s a very manageable disease. As long as you’re really diligent.” Today, as he is capable of managing his diabetes, Jonas opened up about his past so that his fans learn to “prioritise a healthy life”.

“You must go see your doctor and get your check-ups and make sure you’re in the healthiest space you can be in because it’s going to make every aspect of your life better,” he said.

Nick had earlier shared a photo to show how he was affected by diabetes. “The picture on the left is me a few weeks after my diagnosis. Barely 100 pounds after having lost so much weight from my blood sugar being so high before going to the doctor where I would find out I was diabetic. On the right is me now. Happy and healthy. Prioritizing my physical health, working out and eating healthy and keeping my blood sugar in check. I have full control of my day to day life with this disease, and I’m so grateful to my family and loved ones who have helped me every step of the way. Never let anything hold you back from living your best life.”
