Nick Jonas has always been open about his struggles and path to recovery since being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was just 13 years old. 

The 26-year old star posted side-by-side photos of himself from then and now on Instagram, along with a note which reads: "13 years ago today I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The picture on the left is me a few weeks after my diagnosis. Barely 100 pounds after having lost so much weight from my blood sugar being so high before going to the doctor where I would find out I was diabetic. On the right is me now. Happy and healthy. Prioritizing my physical health, working out and eating healthy and keeping my blood sugar in check."

He continued, “I have full control of my day to day life with this disease, and I’m so grateful to my family and loved ones who have helped me every step of the way. Never let anything hold you back from living your best life. Thank you to all my fans for your kind words and support. Means more than you know. Love you all."

Of course, the "Jealous" singer's fiancee Priyanka Chopra showed support to her husband-to-be. "Everything about you is special. With or without diabetes," she wrote in the comments section. Aww.
