Months after being hospitalized for "mild kidney failure" and revealing that he suffered from an autoimmune disease similar to lupus, Nick Cannon is chronicling his efforts to regain his health in a Web series titled "NCredible Health Hustle." He says the goal of the project is to show that "it is possible to put the reins on [kidney disease and lupus] a bit and gain control of your health and wellness."

From the Huffington Post:

The first episode features footage of Cannon's wife, Mariah Carey, holding one of the couple's 11-month old twins, and narration from Cannon, explaining how he went from spending time with his family, "in the snow, playing, having a good time," to swelling up, experiencing shortness of breath and excruciating pain in his right side. Cannon then demonstrates how he woke up in the hospital where doctors gave him the life-altering diagnosis ...

In addition to changes in diet -- which may include limiting fluids and protein, and restricting salt, potassium, phosphorous, and other electrolytes, according to the National Institutes of Health -- reps for the series say it plans to capture everything from the moment Cannon had to make the decision to step away from his daily New York radio show to working with world renowned health experts to traveling the country hosting "America's Got Talent" and making time for his family in between.
