American actor, comedian and rapper Nick Cannon has exposed his health issues to the public. The radio host and DJ has reveal he has something similar to a”lupus-like” autoimmune disease, this reports PEOPLE.
“No one else in my family has it,” expresses Cannon, who has recently announced that he indeed would be stepping down from his daily radio show to focus on getting his health better, after the discovery of his two blood clots in his lungs.
“The blood clot thing was probably the scarcest because… I’ve known people who have passed away from that.”
During his last radio show he told listeners,
”My doctor was saying that my work is going to kill me — and he’s not joking.” Cannon claims those blood clots originated from his existing kidney condition, which was originally thought to be kidney failure. “[It's] something I’m going to be living with all my life.”
Cannon adds that he is lightening up his load at home and tries to get six hours of sleep a night.
”I’m just trying to make sure I put my health first,” he says.
Cannon had married American R&B/pop singer Mariah Carey on April 30, 2008.
