Nick Jonas Launches Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Campaign

Nick Jonas Launches Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Campaign

Pop superstar Nick Jonas is already an inspiration to the millions of teens and 'tweens' who hang on every lyric sung by his band the Jonas Brothers. But Jonas, who suffers from type 1 diabetes, hopes a three-year partnership he’s created with Bayer HealthCare will serve as an inspiration to others living with this disease. “When I was first diagnosed, I did think, 'Why me?'” Jonas said Wednesday on "FOX & Friends," where he announced his partnership. “I had a great medical history. I had never stayed in the hospital before. I didn’t know anybody with diabetes. So it was a shock.” Video: Click here to see Jonas on 'FOX and Friends' Jonas’ mother, Denise Jonas, who joined him on "FOX & Friends," said her son felt alone after learning of his diagnosis because there was no one to offer him guidance. “He really didn’t have anybody to look to,” she said. “So we really want to help Nick be that inspiration.” For its part, Bayer has donated money to the Jonas Brothers' foundation, ChangeForTheChildren.org, to help support the musician’s awareness campaign. As one-third of the pop group that also includes his brothers Kevin and Joe, Jonas was busy touring — playing elementary and middle schools — when he received his diabetes diagnosis in 2005 at age 13. “I started to see some weight loss, I was thirsty all the time and I kind of had a bad attitude,” said Jonas, who is now 15. “I lost 15 pounds in two weeks and my blood sugar was 790-something so they put me in the hospital for two or three days, and gave me a crash course on everything I needed to know.” To put Jonas’ blood sugar level in perspective, a normal level is about 100, said Dr. David Simmons, director of diabetes care and medical and clinical affairs for Bayer.

Why The Blue Circle?

Why The Blue Circle?

I can't quite remember who asked me, but in front of San Francisco City Hall last Friday evening, during our World Diabetes Day celebrations, somebody pointed to my pin and asked, "Why the blue circle, anyway? What does that mean?" They also wanted to know why the logo didn't have the world "diabetes" stamped across it: "Who's going to recognize that this stands for diabetes?!" For goodness' sake, it's supposed to be like the ubiquitous pink ribbon for breast cancer, red ribbon for AIDS, or yellow ribbon for bring-home-the-troops. Setting the issue of why it's blue and a circle aside for a moment, can't we all agree that a symbol that speaks for itself is better than having to pin the word "DIABETES" on your lapel? I was especially surprised to discover that folks from the local chapter of the ADA (American Diabetes Association) weren't at all familiar with the blue circle campaign. I sort of forgave them for it last year, since it was still very new then, but now I'm thinking that that group — and this country at large, which doesn't play up World Diabetes Day a fraction as much as the rest of the world — may be suffering from some classic "not invented here syndrome." When you go to the ADA's website right now, for example, you see "American Diabetes Month," but nada on WDD. I hereby proclaim this Call to Action for next year's WDD: Let's do it up, right, America! And that means you, ADA! And that means you, Mainstream Media! This awareness campaign is gaining traction, with the likes of T1 rockstar Nick Jonas on board, but it seems like we have a long way to go to catch up with the Brits, the Germans, or the Australians, for example. And now for the Why Blue? And Why a Circle? I know from my previous research that this symbol was the brainchild of Kari Rosenfeld Continue reading >>

A Diabetic's Best Friend

A Diabetic's Best Friend

For always-monitoring Anna, help from Leo makes the '24/7 job' less harrowing UNO junior Anna Di Ruocco pricks her finger for a test after Leo, her diabetic alert dog, signaled a change in her blood sugar at UNO's Mammel Hall. Di Ruocco has won many plaudits and taken on many challenges, but she said her battle with Type 1 diabetes has been "the hardest thing I've ever had to do." Anna Di Ruocco snuggles with Leo. Joe Cook, who helped train Leo, said that he tries to match the person to the dog and that Leo's "quirky personality" is a great fit for Anna. Anna Di Ruocco reaches down to pet Leo as she studies at UNO. Leo goes everywhere with Anna, keeping his nose attuned to her blood sugar level. Any prospective boyfriends, Anna says, should know that she and Leo are "a package deal." Anna has a tattoo that embraces her Type I diabetes. Anna Di Ruocco The UNO junior was diagnosed with diabetes in high school after losing weight and craving water. On Christmas, Anna Di Ruocco will celebrate a gift that has provided her more confidence and freedom a dog named Leo. She is a brittle Type 1 diabetic, and having him constantly at her side is a blessing. "It's a little like having your guardian angel right next to you," Anna said. "He gives me hope. I had lost hope for a bit." "Leonardo di Ruocco" - with his movie-star name - is a medical-alert dog trained to notice when Anna's blood sugars are running dangerously high or low. When they do, which happens daily, Leo nudges his nose against Anna's hand. Then she will inject insulin or consume juice or a fruit snack to get her blood sugars back into the proper range a range that most of us take for granted. TYpe 1 diabetics, whose pancreases no longer produce insulin, take nothing for granted. For those like Anna with a severe fo Continue reading >>

'this Is Not Cool': Nick Jonas Hits Out At Crossfit Tweet Saying It Fails To Show Difference Between Types Of Diabetes

'this Is Not Cool': Nick Jonas Hits Out At Crossfit Tweet Saying It Fails To Show Difference Between Types Of Diabetes

He has been an outspoken advocate for diabetes for many years after dealing with the disease himself. And on Tuesday Nick Jonas hit out at Crossfit after the company posted what he felt was a misleading Tweet on their account. The singer, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 14 years old was vocal about his disapproval of a message. Scroll down for video The fitness company Tweeted a fake Coca-Cola ad that read: 'Open Diabetes', along with the caption 'Make sure you pour some out for your dead homies'. The 22-year-old took to his own account to slam what he felt was an ignorant way of discussing the condition as it did not make the differentiation between type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes 'This is not cool. Please know and understand the difference between type one and type diabetes before making ignorant comments. 'Sensitivity to all diseases, and proper education on the cause and day to day battle is important' he Tweeted. The company retaliated saying the singer had misunderstood they did not 'grasp the difference' between the two different types of the illness. Nick was diagnosed with the type 1 of the disease in November 2005. He told Diabetes Health he began to notice the symptoms: 'losing weight, the bad attitude, being thirsty, going to the bathroom all the time.' Nick said he lost around 15lbs in two to three weeks: 'It was just insane. I had a terrible attitude, which was totally odd for me because I’m actually a nice person. Especially being on the road around people all the time, you have to keep that positive energy going. And it was hard.' He took some time off and when he saw a doctor he was told his blood sugar was over 700. Nick's type of diabetes is usually diagnosed in children. It is a chronic condition in where the pancreas produce Continue reading >>

Celebrities With Diabetes

Celebrities With Diabetes

Now that greasy-handed, giggle-prone celebrity chef Paula Deen has finally emerged from her butter-lined closet and announced to the world that, yes, she does indeed have Type 2 diabetes, all eyes are on other famous folks who also have high blood sugar levels. Among celebrities, diabetes, particularly Type 2 or adult onset diabetes, isn’t exactly a rarity. In fact, a 2007 ABC News article dubbed the sometimes-deadly chronic disorder as the “affliction of the stars.” Celebs aside, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that in 2010, around 26 million Americans have a form of the disease, primarily Type 2, while a whopping 79 million adults in the U.S. are living with pre-diabetes. Most of us know the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, but here’s a quick refresher: Type 1, often referred to as juvenile diabetes, occurs when the pancreas is unable to naturally produce a hormone known as insulin that keeps blood glucose levels in check. When a person is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, usually at a young age, they are required to inject insulin to survive. Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for upwards of 85 percent of diabetes cases, occurs when the pancreas is capable of producing insulin but something goes haywire and the cells resist it. Type 2 diabetes is often brought on by lack of exercise, obesity, heart disease and eating all those delicious, not-very-nutritious goodies that Paula Deen cooks. Unlike Type 1 diabetes, someone with adult onset diabetes may not need to inject insulin and can treat the disorder through exercise, diet change and medications along with careful blood glucose monitoring. Now that we’ve got diabetes 101 out of the way, here’s a look at 15 bold face names who are living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. As Continue reading >>

Dnr Tattoos: A Cautionary Tale

Dnr Tattoos: A Cautionary Tale

California Pacific Medical Center, 2351 Clay St. Suite 380, San Francisco, CA 94115 USA Lori Cooper, Email: [email protected] . Received 2011 Oct 10; Revised 2012 Mar 5; Accepted 2012 Mar 20. Copyright Society of General Internal Medicine 2012 This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. A 59-year-old man with diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension and dyslipidemia was admitted to the hospital for a below-the-knee amputation due to chronic non-healing wounds of his lower extremity. Physical examination revealed a D.N.R. tattoo on his chest (Fig. 1 ). Upon reviewing his code status, he indicated that he would want resuscitative efforts initiated in the event of a cardiac or respiratory arrest. However, he did not want prolonged attempts at resuscitation. When asked why his tattoo conflicted with his wishes to be resuscitated, he explained that he had lost a bet playing poker with fellow ancillary hospital staffers while inebriated in his younger years; the loser had to tattoo D.N.R. across his chest. His code status was subsequently documented correctly in his medical record with further explanation of his wishes. Despite his comorbidities, he was relatively active in his outside life and was medically stable during his time in the hospital. It was suggested that he consider tattoo removal to circumvent future confusion about his code status. He stated he did not think anyone would take his tattoo seriously and declined tattoo removal.

This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries. Diabetes mellitus type 1, also known as type 1 diabetes, or T1DM (formerly known as insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes) is a condition in which the body does not produce insulin, resulting in high blood sugar levels in the body.[1][2] Whereas type 2 diabetes is typically diagnosed in middle age and treated via diet, oral medication and/or insulin therapy, type 1 diabetes tends to be diagnosed earlier in life, and people with type 1 diabetes require insulin therapy for survival.[1] The following is a list of notable people—including writers, artists, athletes, entertainers, and others—who have been documented as having type 1 diabetes.

In back-to-back videos that he shared to his My Story, Nick captured the process of the tattoo, showing both himself and Joe getting inked while lying on a chair as theartists drewthe arrows on their triceps.

Nick Jonas Reveals New Religious Arm Tattoo

Nick Jonas Reveals New Religious Arm Tattoo

Nick Jonas Reveals New Religious Arm Tattoo Looking at Nick Jonas new tattoo, one might think it was inked in the same hieroglyphics that Chris Brown used on his Fortune album cover. In reality, the mysterious ink on Nick Jonas arm is actually inspired by his religion and his belief in God. Confused? Well, when Nick Jonas revealed his new tattoo of the letter G follow by several symbols on Instagram this week, he accompanied it with the following caption: God is greater than the highs and lows. Get it?? A G for God, a greater-than symbol, an upside down V to represent the highs, and the letter V to stand for the lows. We have to admit, we think Nick Jonas tattoo is pretty clever, and not only does it symbolize the singers religious beliefs, but it could also be a tribute to his latest album, titled simply V. Nick is the youngest Jonas brother, behind big bros Joe and Kevin, and already has two tattoos to his name at the age of 20, including the word Mercy, which is inked on the outside of his right arm. Nick Jonas latest tattoo is inked on the inside of his left forearm, and appears to have at least a similar meaning to his Mercy tattoo. The Jonas brothers are famous for their devout Christian beliefs, having made headlines previously for such religious acts as wearing purity rings. (P.S. did you know that Kevin Jonas wore his purity ring right up until his wedding in 2009, at which point he ceremoniously swapped it out for a wedding ring? Now thats devotion.) Even the Jonas brothers music points to their religious beliefs, including their song Dear God. Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber Love Religious Tats There are plenty of stars in the music industry who take inspiration (both for their music and their tattoos) from their religious beliefs, including the Jonas brothers, Continue reading >>
