My diabetes has definitely made me stronger. It’s a big contribution to my character.
(PRWEB) November 13, 2015
Research has come a very long way in regards to managing diabetes, as well as helping prevent serious complications that develop as a result. Aside from managing blood glucose levels, people with diabetes are at higher risk for developing hard-to-heal wounds as well problems with their feet, vision and kidneys. This campaign discusses how patients can help avoid these complications as part of their daily management.
Nick Jonas, singer-songwriter and actor, graces the cover of the print publication. In an exclusive interview with Mediaplanet, he shares his personal experiences with Type 1 diabetes and how he adapted to his condition with the help of his friends and family. “We all go through something that makes our life challenging,” he says. “My go-to advice is to trust in your family and friends.” Jonas concludes by putting everything in perspective, stating, “We need to look at it in a different way. My diabetes has definitely made me stronger. It’s a big contribution to my character.”
