Lil Keed’s cause of death has been revealed seven months after his death.
The “Snake” and “Pull Up” rapper, real name Raqhid Jevon Render, died suddenly in May 2022 at the age of 24 in Los Angeles. Born in Atlanta, Render was signed to YSL Records, a record label founded in 2016 by the rapper young thug.
According to an autopsy report, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner ruled that Render died of natural causes due to eosinophilia. However, the coroner added in the report that the cause of the illness was unclear.
The report says Render said he was due at the hospital around 7:30 p.m. Los Angeles time on May 13.
“He had been bedridden for four days and complained of stomach and back pain,” the report said. “His brother noted the deceased’s eyes were jaundiced and took him to hospital in a private vehicle.”
On the way to the hospital, Render suffered a seizure “before becoming unresponsive”. He later died in hospital at 10:14 p.m. that day.
The coroner said People that Render was also in a Georgia hospital last year after experiencing stomach pain, but “left against medical advice and did not seek follow-up care.”
The coroner also added that Render frequently drank alcohol and smoked a vape pen, but his family said he did not use drugs or have any other health issues.
Raqhid’s younger brother, Lil Gotit (Semaja Render), 23, confirmed the news at the time in an Instagram post shared on May 14.
“I can’t believe I saw you die bro. I did all my crying. I know what you want me to do, and it’s hard on mom, dad [and] our brothers, Naychur and Whiteboy #ImaHoldThisS—tDown,” Semaja captioned her post.
What is eosinophilia?
The Cleveland Clinic states that eosinophilia occurs when “your body produces an abnormally high number of eosinophils,” which are one of many white blood cells that support your immune system.
“They are part of your body’s defense system against allergens and help protect your body against fungal and parasitic infections,” according to the Cleveland Clinic. “Certain medical conditions and medications can cause high eosinophil counts.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, you may have high levels of eosinophils in your blood or in the tissues at the site of infection or inflammation. Usually, eosinophilia indicates a parasitic infection, allergic reaction, or cancer.
There are also different levels of eosinophilia: a mild condition may indicate a drug reaction or allergy, while a severe condition may be caused by certain blood disorders.
What are the symptoms and causes of eosinophilia?
Often, eosinophilia has no symptoms. High levels of eosinophils usually stem from underlying conditions that cause several different symptoms.
A large number of eosinophils can be directed to a certain part of the body due to:
Several diseases and conditions can cause eosinophilia, including:
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Ascariasis (a roundworm infection)
Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
Cancer, including ovarian cancer
Idiopathic Hypereosinophilic Syndrome (HES)
Lymphatic filariasis (a parasitic infection)
Trichinosis (a roundworm infection)
How can I prevent eosinophilia?
According to the Cleveland Clinic, allergies are the most common cause of high eosinophil levels, which can be prevented with treatment to control allergies.
“But there are times when eosinophilia can be a sign of an underlying condition that you may not be able to prevent,” the Cleveland Clinic continues.
Eosinophilia is usually only discovered by chance, usually when your doctor has ordered blood tests because of an illness you already have.
If you receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment for your condition, eosinophilia will usually go away.
