Nick Cannon: “Lupus-Like” Disease The Culprit Behind Health Issues

March 2, 2012  |  

By now you know that Nick Cannon hasn’t been in the best of health recently. At the beginning of the year he and wife Mariah Carey were photographed in a hospital bed for what was originally diagnosed as mild kidney failure. Then after that doctors found blood clots in his lungs. Now the media personality has revealed a “lupus-like” autoimmune disease is the source behind the two health scares.

Cannon told People, “It’s a lot of stuff but it’s all in order now.”

Attempting to focus on his health, Cannon said he tries to get six hours of sleep and take it easy when he’s home.

“I feel blessed to be alive,” Cannon said. “If it wasn’t discovered, I don’t know [what would have happened].”

We wish him improving health and strength as he and his family deal with this issue.

    I thought it might have been lupus. That’s very common for black folks.

    I hope he stays healthy because Mariah doesn’t seem like the kind of woman to stick by a man when he can’t work anymore.
