Last week on the "Keepin' It 100" podcast, Konnan said that his health has declined because he needs a new kidney. 

On the latest podcast, he says that after he spoke about his health issues last week, several fans reached out to him and offered to donate their kidneys to him.

Konnan said, "I don't really like to talk about myself or make myself the victim or poor guy or, you know, that's not me. But something really nice happened, man. I had a lot of candidates say, 'Hey, I will donate a kidney to you.' I'm very touched. I haven't gotten back to anybody yet. But I will. And somebody's gonna save my life, bro. You know, and that's a beautiful thing. So it restores my faith in humanity, which I have very little left in it."

Konnan went on to thank everyone who has reached out to him and he revealed that he had not slept much in the last five or six months because of the stress related to his kidney issues.

He said, "I want to thank all the people that offer this. It's a beautiful thing. And, you know, so one of the things that I was having a problem with and I don't know if I told you about, I haven't slept like in five or six months. Literally, I've slept an hour a day, two hours a day. I stay up 50 hours straight. And I found that the reason was is because I was so stressed out that I couldn't find a kidney. And the last few days, I've slept three hours, three hours to me is gold."

Konnan also said that it's been hard for him to do the podcast because of his health and he went to Juarez for a TV taping and he got really sick. He said that when he crossed the border, his face and hands got frozen and he couldn't walk anymore and he had pneumonia "not too long ago" and while in Juarez he had to go to the emergency room during Thanksgiving. He said that he will be going back to start dialysis.
