Nick Cannon was hospitalised with blood clots on his lungs last week.

The 'America's Got Talent' host - who suffered mild kidney failure earlier this year - was treated by doctors for two clots and an enlarged right ventricle in his heart after his immune system began attacking his organs.

Speaking on his 92.3 NOW-FM show, Nick - who has nine-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with wife Mariah Carey - said: "I have been in the hospital since Friday, and actually, it's quite serious. I didn't even know. I was actually trying to downplay it a lot - even in my own mind - not go to the hospital because I was having a lot of pain in my back and I thought it was the typical kidney pain that I had been experiencing, but I thought it had been a little bit heightened....

"Because of the blood clots in my lungs, I also had an enlarged ventricle in my heart.

"My antibodies [in] my immune system were attacking my organs and it made my body even weaker."

Despite his latest health scare, the 31-year-old presenter feels "lucky" because it could have been much worse.

He added: "My doctor was like, 'Luckily, you're in shape, because most people who get blood clots in their lungs can't breathe and they stop breathing, like, forever.' "

"I didn't have that symptom of not being able to breathe. I mean it hurt; I had pain; when I took deep breaths it really hurt, and I told my doctors about this and they hooked me up and everything's good now."

Nick has now been warned he has to slow down his work rate - or it will "kill" him.

He added: "My doctor was saying that my work is going to kill me - and he's not joking.

"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.

"I always took a lot of pride in working so hard and never taking a day off. 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."
