And when Kevin and Joe noticed a major weight loss, Nick finally went to the doctor.

“I was very close to a coma,” Nick, who was then diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, said. “Like a day away, if I hadn’t gone to the hospital.”

“I kept asking my parents — am I going to be okay?” he revealed. “I was just so concerned that it was going to limit my ability to do all the things I wanted to do. I was very scared — it’s a big life change.”

But now, Nick can manage his diagnosis.

“I found out very quickly it’s a very manageable disease,” he said. “As long as you’re really diligent.”

Nick also opened up about the disease in the Amazon Prime documentary “Chasing Happiness”.
