If you would like to support and donate to BeyondType1; know that 100 % of your contribution will support their mission in educating the diabetes community and looking for a cure for type 1 diabetes.


With help from friends and family, Jonas figured out how to adapt to T1D, an autoimmune disease affecting at least 1.25 million Americans.

That wasn’t easy at first, especially for Jonas, a self-described independent person who had to learn to rely on others to make sure he stayed healthy and his insulin in check. “My go-to advice is to just trust in your family and friends,” he adds.

One of Jonas’ biggest obstacles upon his diagnoses was understanding his body and learning how to stay healthy, especially with a hectic schedule. He counts on a continuous glucose monitor and insulin pump to stay on top of his condition. “These are life changing tools that I literally and figuratively keep in my back pocket,” he says of the devices, which simplify his disease management.

And the kids are rubbing off on Garber, too; he’s recently joined social media, both in order to keep up with his new fan base and to promote his work with the diabetes charity Beyond Type 1. “My friends are shocked,” Garber says.

16 Celebs Who Have Been Open About Medical & Health Conditions


Sometimes, it is easy to think of celebrities as being immune to terrible things that happen to the rest of us. After all, they are rich and famous and put on a pedestal in the public eye, and it seems like they have everything at their disposal. But this doesn't change the fact that they are human like everyone else, and thus, they are susceptible to very human issues. One of those issues is medical conditions, both mental and physical. Some celebrities have been open about having medical and health conditions, which is an important thing as it makes fans going through similar situations feel like they're not alone.

"I'm just a face for young people to say, 'You're not alone and you can achieve what you want to achieve,' " says Garber, who also notes that it is an erratic disease that can have very serious complications. "That's really what I feel very strongly about, you are not defined by Type 1 diabetes."

Variety


This is very recent for me, but Sarah Lucas is the woman who contacted me about it, with Nick Jonas and some other people, they are trying to educate people on Type 1 diabetes, and I was diagnosed when I was 12 years old, so that was a long time ago. I’ve lived with it my whole life, obviously, and it’s very different from Type 2 diabetes, which is what people think of as diabetes, like “just don’t eat that” — but it’s way more complicated.
