ABC News reports that Poison frontman Bret Michaels had to be rushed offstage due to low blood glucose levels.

I'm a Type I Diabetic too. Low blood glucose (or "sugar") levels are no joke. You can straight up die if they go too low. As much as he runs around onstage, I'm surprised that this sort of thing hasn't happened sooner.

While I can't confirm, I've been told by reliable sources that Michaels still uses injections to administer his insulin shots.

Bret, buddy, it's time to switch to an insulin pump. It will improve your life as a Type I Diabetic IMMENSELY!
