Nick Cannon Reveals Kidney Problems Were Part Of Autoimmune Disease

Filed under: Nick CannonHealth

Nick Cannon autoimmune disease

Oh no! We're so sorry to hear about Nick Cannon's recent health problems. Although he's got them under control now, it sounds like he'll be dealing with issues for the rest of his life.

While DJing at an event in NYC on Wednesday, the television personality revealed that his kidney condition was the result of an "autoimmune disease that [doctors] found" in his system and it won't be going away, continuing:

"They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is – like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it."

The autoimmune disease caused the kidney failure, which then produced ANOTHER health scare when he was rushed to the hospital a few weeks ago because of a blood clot in his lungs. Nick described the experience as one of "the scariest" things that has ever happened to him, saying:

"The blood clot thing was probably the scariest because … I've known people who have passed away from that. I thought I was getting better and then that happened, so that kind of came out of nowhere."

Since being diagnosed with his health problems, Nick has had to stop hosting his radio show and is actively trying to get more sleep every night. No matter what inconveniences arise from his condition, however, Nick just feels "blessed to be alive."

He's still recovering however and, unfortunately, couldn't attend CES 2012 in Las Vegas this week to promote his new N-Ergy in-ear and N-Tune on-ear headphones that are available through audio company Monster.

While he couldn't physically step foot in the Venetian hotel and casino to attend the consumer electronics tradeshow, he was still able to make an appearance. The America's Got Talent host Skyped the event and appeared on a large monitor, saying:

"I wish I could be there with you. They are rebooting my immune system. It's my first day out of the hospital."

What better way to promote innovative technology than using innovative technology? Ha!
