Despite recovering from a case of mild kidney failure earlier this year, Nick Cannon claims he's not done with hospitals just yet.

On Thursday, Nick revealed on his 92.3 NOW morning radio show that he was admitted to the hospital last week for two blood clots found in his lung and an enlarged ventricle on the right side of his heart. 

“It was quite serious. I was trying to downplay it a lot, even in my own mind,” Nick told listeners. "I travel a lot. Anyone who flies a lot can be a victim to getting blood clots because it can start in your legs or your lower back. That, on top of my previous condition made me more prone to [getting blood clots]."

According to the star, his hectic work schedule had caused his body to shut down. In fact, his doctor had warned him that his health will continue to decline if he does not take a break from his job.

"My doctor was saying that my work is going to kill me – and he’s not joking,” he said. "I think part of the reason why my health did kind of deteriorate was because I wasn’t resting a lot and I was doing too much. I was overworking myself, working out too much."

Nick was hospitalized for a mild kidney failure earlier this year.

Nick, who is the proud parent of twins Monroe and Moroccan (Roc and Roe) with wife Mariah Carey, also expressed his concern to be healthy and there for his family.

“I always took a lot of pride in working so hard and never taking a day off,” he explained. “But I’m learning that it isn’t the wisest thing all the time, especially being a new father. Not only wanting to spend more time with my children, but wanting to be there for my children.”

    Uh...because he has healthy self-respect and a strong work ethic? Frankly, one of the things I've always liked about Nick Cannon is that he works harder than his famous wife -- hosting America's Got Talent, producing and hosting shows for Teen Nickelodeon, constantly touring in comedy clubs, acting, etc. Sounds like it's all catching up to him, though.
