Bret Michaels, 44, the lead singer of Poison, and star of his own reality show, "Rock of Love," was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6. Micheals has described his diagnosis at such a young age as a "blessing in disguise," because it has always been with him. During a show at Madison Square Garden (playing there was Michael's dream), a missed meal made him pass out on stage, forcing him to tell his fans about the disease. Though disappointed his dream of performing at MSG was cut short, he says he learned a lot from the experience. These days, Michaels takes insulin three times a day, and keeps orange juice and Gatorade nearby when he performs in case his blood sugar becomes too low.
