"I kept asking my parents, 'Am I going to be OK?' 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," he said adding that he "found out very quickly it's a very manageable disease - as long as you're really diligent.”

Earlier reports had revealed that the singer-turned-actor had his blood sugar levels spiking to perilous levels as he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes .

The medical conditions had been discovered after his parents had taken him to the hospital over concerns for his deteriorating weight and recurrent, unhealthy cravings for soda.
