Shandling had surgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for hyperparathyroidism, a rare disease that can cause heart attacks. He was very thankful to his doctors for the care he got. Let’s read in detail about Garry Shandling Cause of Death.
Garry Shandling Cause of Death
The reason why Garry Shandling died has been found out. Variety got a report from the Los Angeles County coroner on Tuesday. It says that the comic died of pulmonary thrombosis, which is a blood clot in his heart. Blood clots in his lower limbs led to the clot that killed him.
Shandling had said on March 23, 2016, that his legs hurt and he couldn’t get enough air. A friend told him to go to the doctor, and he said he would do that the next day. On March 24, 2016, he called 911 because he couldn’t breathe. While on the phone, he fell over. He was taken to the emergency room at St. John’s Hospital, where he was said to be dead. He had been alive for 66 years.
The lab report showed that he had therapeutic amounts of Xanax and opiates (prescribed after recent dental work) as well as some common cold medicines.
In the coroner’s report, his death was called an “accident” and “natural.”
