Nick Cannon has decided to quit his radio show after doctors told him he needs to lessen his workload in order for his body to rest after he was hospitalized in recent weeks for kidney failure and blood clots.

“Under doctor’s orders, I have been asked to cut back on some of my professional commitments to allow my body to get the rest it needs to keep up with the demands of my multitasking schedule,” Cannon said in a statement.

But a tweet from Cannon to his 3 million-plus Twitter followers made it sound like his health problems were more serious than he let on his statement.

“The Doctors found blood clots in my lungs and said if I don’t slow down and stop working so hard then it’s a wrap!”

“Even Super Man had to sleep!” he tweeted on Thursday.

But that doesn’t mean his fans have seen the last of him.

According to reports, Cannon will continue his gig on America’s Got Talent, which just recently added Howard Stern to its judges table.

Cannon was hospitalized last month for kidney failure. The shocking news was made public when his wife, Mariah Carey, posted a picture of Cannon in a hospital bed. She said on Twitter that he was suffering from “mild kidney failure.”

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with CBS Radio and the 92.3 NOW morning show team and I would like to thank them for their unwavering support,” Cannon, 31, said in the statement, where he mentioned that he would continue to host his syndicated show “Cannon’s Countdown.”

The station said in a statement: “We respect and understand Nick’s decision to step down from his day to day position as host of morning drive on 92.3 NOW, and fully support him as he takes on a less demanding role with the station in order to address his health
