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."

Learn to Better Control your sugar levels.

It's NOT brain surgery, people manage it well Everyday of their lives.

Glad he's ok, just, he has all the tools, no excuse especially with his money etc., so, watch your levels more closely if you want to stick around.
