Los Angeles - Nick Cannon has made a documentary about his recent health problems.

The America's GotTalent host was hospitalised with kidney failure in January, then again a few weeks later with blood clots in his lungs, and has since been diagnosed with rare disease lupus nephritis, and has documented his struggle in short film, The Incredible Health Hussle.

He told CNN talk show host Piers Morgan: "The whole process I've been documenting. Since probably my first time out of the hospital in January, I've just been having the cameras on. It's real intimate and raw."

Nick - who has 11-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan with his wife Mariah Carey - made the documentary as a way to highlight health issues and help others who are suffering.

'So many questions'

He added: "I want to kind of show the other people that are dealing with these illnesses that they're not alone.

"There's so many questions. How did you get this? How are you working through it?

"You're going to see all of this inThe Incredible Health Hussle."

Nick also praised Mariah for taking care of him and their children throughout his ordeal.

He said: "She is such a pro, she knows all the home remedies."
