Being a celebrity can afford us many of life’s rewards. However, fame doesn’t exempt us from health problems. Now more than ever, celebrities are speaking about their health issues.
Recently, “Wild ‘N Out” creator Nick Cannon revealed that he was diagnosed with lupus in 2012. At the time, the star developed pneumonia which led his cortisol levels to rise and his heartbeat to become rapid. His condition became more severe after he developed a kidney infection.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that major side effects of pneumonia include the inflammation of the lining of the lungs, kidney issues and joint pain. Adding respiratory problems to the equation only makes lupus more life-threatening.
Fortunately, Nick Cannon has found a way to live his life to the fullest. More importantly, the former rapper knows that it’s important for him to take care of his body. Not just for himself, but also for his family. His latest hospitalization gave him the wake-up call he needed: “Take care of you or you can’t take care of anyone else.”

Nick Cannon Makes A Revelation
The star has been on a straight and narrow path since his last hospitalization. Nick Cannon has since made a promise to himself that he’d never reach that low point again.
Unfortunately, he found himself back in the hospital on Dec. 2 after developing pneumonia again. Furthermore, the 42-year-old posted photos on Instagram of himself being hospitalized. The star spent the better part of the weekend being watched over by medical staff.
Cannon wrote in the captions, “Okay, so I guess I’m not Superman… I promised myself I would never be back at this place again… But this is a great lesson to take care of YOU or YOU won’t be able to take care of everyone else. Don’t trip though, I don’t need any well wishes or prayers, just some solid rest, and I will be back on the journey to becoming stronger than ever.” Cannon ended up doing exactly what he set out to do.
The Star Hits The Gym Again
By the very next week, Nick Cannon was back to his old self. During his latest Instagram live session on Dec. 12, Cannon shared that he’s ready to get stronger. The video also featured the star working out in the gym. Clearly, the “Wild N’ Out” star enjoys taking care of himself. Though, this isn’t the first time Cannon documented his workout sessions.
