I have found that it is pretty rare for men to be diagnosed with lupus, but there are some out there. Probably more than I even recognize. One of the most famous lupies is Nick Cannon – husband to Mariah Carey and host of America’s Got Talent. Not that I watch that show or even knew who Nick was until now (doh!).
He talks about how his doctors told him to slow it down.
“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.”
From what it appears from his busy schedule, he still hasn’t fully gotten the message.
