Priyanka Chopra’s husband Nick Jonas who is a celebrated American singer might have everything to himself in life, but there is still something that haunted him as a teenager.

The young singer who made it big with his brothers to form a teen band ‘Jonas brothers’, suffered from diabetes that led to him being a day away from falling into a coma. It all happened as his parents saw Nick losing weight and craving for soda. He was then taken to a hospital and the medics discovered that his blood sugar levels had spiked to dangerous high because he has Type I diabetes. 

This was when Nick was merely 13 years old. 

Speaking about it to a magazine, Nick said, "I was very close to a coma. Like, a day away, if I hadn't gone to the hospital.

“I kept asking my parents, 'Am I going to be OK?' 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."

Later, Nick found out that it after all a disease that could be taken care of with some precautions. He said, "I found out very quickly it's a very manageable disease - as long as you're really diligent.”
