#10 George Lucas

Multimillionaire George Lucas was just 23 years old when he found out he had been suffering from type 2 diabetes. Becoming the United States Air Force officer was his dream. He couldn't become one as he received far too many speeding tickets during his younger years. However, the United States Army drafted him for the Vietnam War but dropped him at the last moment because his medical tests showed he had diabetes. The 72-year-old Star Wars creator and billionaire celebrity said to have inherited the disease from his paternal grandfather. George Lucas set a great example for millions of diabetic patients around the world by keeping his blood sugars levels under control for about 50 long years.
