Many people know Damon Dash best as the cofounder--along with Jay-Z--of Roc-A-Fella Records. But fewer folks may know that Dash learned he had type 1 diabetes as a teenager and thought he wouldn't make it to adulthood.

"I was urinating a lot and had lost 40 to 50 pounds and was really tired. I felt terrible," he says. "I just didn't want to feel like that anymore. I thought I had something else, something that was not curable or livable. I thought I was dying. There were rumors about me. At 16, I was having sex, so girls were getting themselves tested and this type of stuff. I was scared to go to the doctor."

Although type 1 diabetes is also known as juvenile diabetes, individuals can develop this blood sugar disorder at any age. In addition, more adults than kids suffer from the condition, according to the American Diabetes Association. But it can be months or years before enough beta cells are destroyed to cause noticeable symptoms.
