Nick Cannon fully recovered from kidney problems

Monday February 6, 2012

Nick Cannon has said he is now fully recovered from his recent mild kidney failure, and attributed his improved health to a change in diet.

"This is a great place to get back and debut the healthy Nick", the actor and comedian said while hosting NBC's pre-game Super Bowl show.

Nick, 31, who was rushed to hospital last month, has had to change his habits.

He no longer eats the same food as his wife Mariah Carey.

"I used to be a fast-food junkie," he said. "She gets to have higher protein, which isn't fair because I love my steaks and I can't eat that anymore.

"Her carbs are lower so we are both on a diet, but it is different."

When asked if he'd like to expand his brood one day, he laughed and said: "I would love to have more children.

"Now my wife on the other hand, I think the twins took a toll on her. She is like, 'I ain't doing that again'."
