Bodybuilder, 21, dies days after getting flu

Bodybuilder, 21, dies days after getting flu

"We saw him the 23rd for our family Christmas get-together and we noticed he wasn't feeling well", his mother told WPXI.

Baughman planned to just take it easy for a few days and ride out the virus, but his symptoms worsened and he died a few days later.

Dr. Moore says flu symptoms include extreme fatigue, muscle aches, vomiting and fever. He was then rushed to Pittsburgh's UPMC Presbyterian hospital, where he died less than 24 hours later. This is the body's way of reacting to an infection that has gone untreated or that hasn't been stopped. She says people who are under the weather should do their part.

This is evidence the body's immune system has kicked into action, releasing white blood cells to the site of the injury to kill off the bacteria causing the infection.

His mother said Kyler was to a great degree dynamic, regularly going by the exercise center, before he turned out to be sick. Usually, symptoms from the flu are worse than those of a cold.

Flu-related deaths seem to be piling up, and news of a 21-year-old bodybuilder who died of flu complications just days after he started feeling ill seem unreal. One person under the age of 18 also died from the flu. They also said he never got a flu shot. It is unknown if having the flu shot would have prevented Baughman from getting sick (sometimes the flu shot is for a different strain and doesn't protect against the sickness), but it's a possibility.

The CDC says each year between nine and 35 million Americans get the flu, resulting in between 140,000 to 170,000 hospitalizations. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against flu.

At that point, Baughman's health began to deteriorate rapidly.

Kyler Baughman, an athletic aspiring personal trainer from Latrobe, had a runny nose and appeared "rundown" during a family visit before Christmas on December 23, said his mother, Beverly Baughman, who said, "I think he thought, 'I just got the flu; I'll be all right".

Kyler Baughman seemed to be the face of fitness. It was unclear if he had any other underlying issues or if his immune system was further compromised at the time he contracted the sickness. She spoke with the outlet following her beau's passing.

"He kinda only laid down and went about this afternoon, and which has been the day he was coughing and said that his chest hurt", said his fiancée, " Olivia Marcanio. "Years ago I performed an autopsy on a lovely little boy who was about two years old when he succumbed to the disease", she recalled, "It was such as sad loss for what can be a preventable disease".
