0530_bret_Michaels_gettyBret Michaels had to cut short a concert last night after just three songs when he suffered a medical emergency related to his diabetes.

Michaels was performing in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday night when he rushed off stage. Michaels was suffering from low blood sugar -- he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a child.

The Manchester Fire Department tells TMZ that a 911 call was placed around 9:45 PM about a diabetic problem on a tour bus. EMS was dispatched to the scene to treat Michaels.

Michaels' guitarist posted to Michaels' Facebook page after the show, "[Michaels] basically had to be dragged off the stage in his sickest of conditions. When I rushed to the bus he could barley speak, but begged me to apologize to the fans and seemed only concerned for them."

JUST MY OPINION    

Y Husband has also been diabetic since he was a child & sometimes it is hard for him to realize its that low. With him being on stage, singing, & it being hot it.is hard to tell if its low. I can usually tell him before he knows. Slurred speech, glassy eyes, sweating, & unsteady on his feet. If u have never been through it or around it then U HAVE NO CLUE HOW HARD BEING TYPE 1 IS!!!!

Low blood sugar can really fvck you up. And the feeling is truly godawful. Tough break for both Brett and his fans. But these things happen even to diabetics who monitor their blood sugar very closely.

Shouldn't he be in a nursing home by now! Come on. He's old still trying to be a rock star like its 1982. Get out of here! Karma is a bitch! He's broke still trying to perform to pay for hoes when they money should be used to pay his medical expenses or funeral cost!

Funny to see people can't even find anything negative to say about him so they result to his headband and he's getting older. That just shows what a good guy he is. #getwellbret
