Nick Cannon Ordered To Stay Off Fast Food Due To Disease
Nick Cannon has been ordered to stay away from fast food by his doctors, due to his lupus-like autoimmune disease, the TV and radio presenter recently revealed. After suffering a bout of health issues over the last few months, and even undergoing an operation for a kidney failure, Nick Cannon has been placed under a strict diet and has been forced to cut down on his hectic schedule to ensure that he gets at least six hours of sleep every day...
Speaking to Robin Roberts, Nick said: "I can't have fast food anymore, no happy meals. I'm sad, but I feel a lot better. That kind of food slows you down. The technical term is lupus nephritis. It's a rare form of lupus that's just attacking my kidneys."
He added: "They thought it was just kidney disease and then they were trying to figure out why my immune system was attacking my kidneys and that was sort of the root of it all. A lot of people have passed away from that and the doctor said that, luckily, I was in such great shape and taking care of myself, because a lot of people have been taken down by it."
