The cause of death of Lil Keed has been determined seven months after his passing.
The “Snake” and “Pull Up” rapper, whose true name was Raqhid Jevon Render, passed away unexpectedly in Los Angeles in May 2022 at the age of 24. Render was signed to YSL Records, a record company created by the rapper Young Thug in 2016 and based in Atlanta.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner concluded in an autopsy report that Render died of natural causes owing to eosinophilia. However, the coroner noted in the report that the cause of the disease is unknown.
The report shows that Render stated he needed to go to the hospital on May 13 at approximately 7:30 p.m. local time in Los Angeles.
The report stated, “He had been sick in bed for four days, complaining of stomach and back aches.” “His brother observed the deceased’s jaundiced eyes and drove him to the hospital in a private vehicle.”
Render had a seizure en route to the hospital before becoming unresponsive. At 10:14 p.m. that same day, he passed away at the hospital.
The coroner told People that Render was admitted to a Georgia hospital for stomach problems last year, but “he left against medical advice and did not seek further treatment.”
The coroner also noted that Render frequently drank wine and used a vape pen, but according to his family, he did not take drugs or suffer from any other illnesses.
On May 14, Raqhid’s younger brother, 23-year-old Lil Gotit (Semaja Render), verified the news via an Instagram post.
What is eosinophilia?
According to the Cleveland Clinic, eosinophilia develops when “Your body creates an abnormally large number of eosinophils, one of the white blood cells that supports your immune system. They are part of your body’s defence against allergens and aid in preventing fungal and parasite infections “based on the Cleveland Clinic Certain medical problems and drugs can lead to elevated eosinophil levels.
Blood or tissues at the site of an infection or inflammation may include a high concentration of eosinophils, according to the Mayo Clinic. Eosinophilia is typically indicative of a parasite infection, an allergic reaction, or malignancy.
There are also different degrees of eosinophilia: A modest condition may indicate an allergic reaction or a pharmacological reaction, whereas a severe condition may be caused by blood abnormalities.
Are there any symptoms or causes associated with eosinophilia?
Frequently, eosinophilia does not manifest any symptoms. High eosinophil levels are often caused by underlying diseases that manifest in a variety of ways.
Due to the following, a large number of eosinophils may be focused to a certain area of the body:
- Parasitic and fungal diseases
- Allergic reactions
- Skin disorders
- Adrenal conditions
- Endocrine disorders
- Autoimmune disorders
Several conditions and diseases can produce eosinophilia, includingSeveral conditions and diseases can produce eosinophilia, including:
- Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)
- Ascariasis (a roundworm infection)
- Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
- Cancer, including ovarian cancer
- Crohn’s disease
- Churg-Strauss syndrome
- Hay fever
- Eosinophilic esophagitis
- Eosinophilic leukemia
- Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES)
- Hodgkin’s disease
- Hypereosinophilic syndrome
- Primary immunodeficiency
- Lymphatic filariasis (a parasitic infection)
- Parasitic infection
- Trichinosis (a roundworm infection)
- Ulcerative colitis
What are some ways I can prevent eosinophilia?
According to the Cleveland Clinic, allergies are the most prevalent cause of elevated eosinophil levels, which can be averted by treating allergies.
“However, eosinophilia may sometimes indicate an underlying problem that you may not be able to prevent,” explains the Cleveland Clinic.
Typically, eosinophilia is only discovered by chance, when a doctor orders blood testing to diagnose a pre-existing illness.
Eosinophilia will typically resolve if you receive a proper diagnosis and therapy for your illness.
