One Weight loss influencer said she was ‘ready to get back on track’ before having to be put into a medically induced coma.
Family said Lexi Reed31 years old, had to be put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma after her internal organs began to fail.
Danny, Lexi’s husband shared a picture of her in hospital with 1.2 million followers on her Instagram @fatgirlfedup on Thursday.
He said she was seriously ill a few weeks ago and couldn’t keep up with food.
“She then started acting differently so I took her to the hospital where they admitted her to the ICU,” the post said.
Danny said that doctors put his wife into a medically induced coma and put on a ventilator when her organs began to fail.
“They also told me if I had waited she might have died,” he wrote.
“She is currently on dialysis, unable to walk and is recovering.”
‘ARE YOU READY’
Lexi shared an upbeat update on her Instagram page a few days before her hospitalization.
She and her husband are known for losing a total of 407 pounds within two years.
The couple documented their remarkable weight loss journey on YouTube.
“I don’t know about you but after last year I’m ready to get back on track, healthy and to see some change + progress!” Lexi wrote on January 2.
Fans took to the comments section to share their concerns about her health after more than a month of not seeing another post.
“No new posts from her since November and Danny hasn’t posted since July? Are they okay?” one person wrote.
Fans have flooded the post since Thursday with well wishes for Lexi as she recovers at the hospital.
It is unclear if Lexi’s health problems are related to her excessive weight loss.
Danny said she is now awake but Lexi cannot walk and is on dialysis, meaning her kidneys are not working properly.
“Helping her get well again is our top priority,” he wrote.
Her husband says the family is uninsured and they can start a GoFundMe to help cover her medical expenses.
