Troubled comedian Artie Lange has been hospitalized after going into diabetic shock.
The sidekick of radio shock jock Howard Stern was admitted to a Michigan medical center on Tuesday, and took to to update his followers on his condition.
Lange posted a photo of himself laying in a hospital bed, and wrote, “In the hospital outside of Detroit after going into diabetic shock. Trying to get better. Sorry for missing gigs. Love you guys”.
The funnyman is currently in the middle of his stand-up comedy tour in the U.S., but as WENN went to press, there was no word on whether he will recuperate in time for his Los Angeles show on Saturday.
Lange’s hospitalization is another unwelcome setback – over the past few years, he has struggled with substance abuse, multiple arrests and an alleged suicide attempt, but has since received help and is currently sober.
