Around Smashbox Studios - MBFW Fall 2008 - Day 3

Socialite Casey Johnson’s cause of death was released by the coroner today, she died after slipping in a diabetic coma after her body went into diabetic ketoacidosis.

Diabetic ketoacidosis is a state the body falls in when there is too little insulin in the body to break down sugar in the body and have it enter cells for energy. In this deprived state, the body starts to break down fat for energy, and the person can fall into a coma. Once in the comatose state, if left untreated, this condition can be fatal as it was for Casey.
