Nick Jonas Helps Others With Diabetes

Singer Nick Jonas is starring in a new advert promoting a diabetes blood test machine. Nick, the youngest of the Jonas Brothers, spoke out about having the disease last year in which he revealed he lost 15lbs in two weeks. Now 16, the singer and guitarist manages his diabetes and his blood sugar level by using a Contour machine to measure his levels via a glucose test strip.

In the 30-second black and white advert, Nick can be seen holding the device as he reveals: “Having the right tools is crucial in being able to manage your diabetes properly. “It’s very important to me to check by blood sugar before I go on stage. “Being on while I am feeling low can be like being on a rollercoaster.

“It does at times feel like my body is telling me one thing and my mind and my heart is telling me to do something else. Managing my highs and lows is super important.

“My Contour means I can personalise my high-low settings so it really does micro manage where my blood sugar needs to be. “I’m Nick Jonas and never slowing down is my simple way.” The advert is currently airing on TV in the US.
