"The only time it will ever affect you in bed is if you have extremely low blood sugar and you go into insulin shock, at which point you won't be standing up, let alone performing sex. However, I will sometimes hold off on the insulin, which will jack my blood sugar level up to the low 200 range. It's like how a prizefighter will want to go into the ring with his blood sugar levels high. It gives you the stamina of a bull. So, yes, sometimes I will endanger my own life to pleasure a woman." - Bret Michaels talks about living with diabetes in the July Issue of Elle Magazine

The Poison frontman and 'Rock of Love' star was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of six.

Earlier this week Michaels was injured at the Tony awards when he was hit in the head by a set piece, knocking him to the ground. It was later announced the upcoming tour dates could be in jeopardy due to a fractured nose and split lip.
