A Diabetic's Personal Account:
Actor, Tom Hanks, has type two diabetes. "Yeah! I got type-two diabetes! I'm sure there's going to be some media scandal now, saying I got it because I gained and lost weight for movie parts or something." This shows his struggle with weight as a symptom of diabetes and how it affects him.
Musician, Nick Jonas, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 13. About a year and a half after his diagnosis, Nick publicly announced that he had diabetes at Carnival For a Cure. Nick's advice to those newly diagnosed with diabetes is, "Don't let it slow you down at all. I made a promise to myself on the way to the hospital that I wouldn't let this thing slow me down and I'd just keep moving forward, and that's what I did. Just keep a positive attitude and keep moving forward with it. Don't be discouraged."
