Nick Cannon on Living with Lupus: "Take it One Day at a Time."

Rapper Trick Daddy was diagnosed with discoid lupus

American rapper, actor, and producer Trick Daddy was diagnosed with discoid lupus a long time ago, but stays away from Western medicine to treat it. He told Vlad TV in 2009, "I stopped taking any medicine that they was giving me because for every medicine they gave me, I had to take a test or another medicine every 30 days or so to make sure that medicine wasn't causing side effects--dealing with kidney or liver failure... I just all together I ain't taking no medicine." Trick Daddy believes that lupus treatment is a Ponzi scheme, and has chosen to go his own way. But he does support other patients who choose to take Western medicine to treat their symptoms.
