My 600-lb Life fans, however, took the photo to mean something different. They thought it felt like a tribute to Dr. Now. Possibly because he was now dead. Did the year 2021 just take this man from society? Fans poured into the comment section. Making it clear this post terrified them.

  • “Stop scaring me like that Dr Now!”
  • “Again….who running my friend page because i need to beat y’all azz for alwayssss scaring me with the background.”
  • “OMG THIS SCARED ME! Glad to know he’s alive.”
  • “I thought he died when I saw this post!!!”

We don’t believe he’s actually passed away

Based on the comments we shared above, we do not believe he actually passed away. The Instagram account posted another post after this one. And, there are a few Instagram Stories from around the same time. It would be unusual for the account to continue to be active if the post in the photo above was confirming Dr. Now is dead.

That being said, Dr. Nowzaradan is nearly 80-years-old. He was born in October 11, 1944 making him 76-years-old. Given his age, it makes sense why fans would be so jumpy at a post even appearing to suggest he might be dead.

For now, it doesn’t appear as if My 600-lb Life star Dr. Now is dead. But, the Instagram post definitely had fans freaked out.
