The PSA for diabetes by Nick Jonas has been premiered on Sunday, November 2 on Disney Channel. Considered as an apt ambassador, being diagnosed with diabetes type 1 himself in 2005, the member of Jonas Brothers taped the video in support of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The video message that was aired following an episode of "Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream" shows the 16-year-old talking about his own condition, and how people around his age can get help through calling a phone line. "If you have a diabetes, you're not alone," Nick says. "You can learn more and help by calling Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at 800-533-CURE. Stay informed and stay in control."

Nick's PSA is in line to National Diabetes Awareness Month at JDRF. Earlier this week, he kicked off the event at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium where he meets four diabetes-diagnosed fans of him who won a sweepstakes by Bayer Diabetes Care. Called "Walk In Nick's Shoes" (W.I.N.S.), the sweepstakes is to provide young people and their families with the motivation and support they need to help simplify life with diabetes.

God, give it a break. This is a load of crap. Diabetes isn't a death sentence. I would know, I have it. Stop listening to whiny, egocentric popstars, seriously. If you want to help someone, go look up Trisomy Thirteen on the internet. Most of these children don't survive their first year, but all you care about is diabetes. What about diseases no one hears about? Go type in 'alobar holoprosencephaly'. Never heard of it? It is a common occurence with trisomy 13, and it is almost always fatal. Donate your time and attention to THAT!!!!

I don't have diabetes, nor do I know someone that has diabetes, but I think it's great that Nick takes time out of his day, just to help people who have diabetes just like him. He's awesome!!! :)
