It’s a sad period for singer Mariah Carey who announced her fans on Twitter that her husband, Nick Cannon suffered a “mild kidney failure” on Wednesday morning. Carey is now at a hospital in Aspen, Colorado doing her best to help Cannon recover.
The Twitter post was accompanied by a photo showing the 41-year-old singer lying at her husband’s side and helping him drink liquids. According to her declarations, the doctors tried to remove her from Cannon’s room, but they did not succeed. The singer is determined to stay by her hubby’s side no matter what.
She wrote on her official website that they are doing their best to remain festive, despite the current situation. She asked her fans to pray for Cannon and keep him in their thoughts because he is going through a very painful and difficult treatment.
She then added that they were forced to remain in Aspen because Cannon’s health condition worsened unexpectedly. Although the singer is in a reputable hospital in Aspen, she still wishes she were in her home town. In the end, she told fans that as long as they are together nothing bad should happen to her or her husband.
Dr. Bryan Becker explained in a People interview what kidney failure means and how it will affect the health of the “America’s Got Talent” host. The doctor told reporters that “mild kidney failure” is medically known as acute kidney injury. The diagnosis is established through a serum creatinine test. If the kidney is sick, the creatinine is elevated, whereas the kidney function decreases.
There are many factors that may lead to a kidney injury. According to Becker, Cannon might have suffered from a specific illness, he might have taken excessive medication like Advil or Motrin or he could have become dehydrated. The recovery period is directly related to the factor that caused the injury. If it’s just dehydration, Cannon will recover very soon, whereas kidney illnesses need time to ameliorate.
Becker ended his interview with good news for Mariah Carey and her fans. Acute kidney injury tends to get better, so there are very few chances for the disease to relapse in the future.
