Nick Cannon‘s health has been making headlines on a regular basis over the past few months. After being hospitalized over the holidays with mild kidney failure, the star was back in treatment last month for blood clots in his lungs. Now, the “America’s Got Talent” host has announced that he has been diagnosed with a rare form of lupus.

Cannon’s specific diagnosis is lupus nephritis, an auto-immune disorder that affects the kidneys. After discussing the condition with “Good Morning America” on Tuesday, he explained that he will be complimenting his doctor’s treatments with meditation and other holistic methods of care.

Husband of Mariah Carey and recent father of twins, the busy celeb has wasted no time harnessing the public attention surrounding his diagnosis to the benefit of other lupus patients. While in D.C. this week, he even took time out to visit the offices of Lupus Foundation of America.

During his visit, he chatted with LFA chairwoman Karen Evans, and even tweeted pictures of himself in the office. He quickly added a call to action to his message saying, “Together we can all make a difference! Incredible!”
