Casey Johnson -- Diabetic Coma History

1/5/2010 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Johnson -- Diabetic Coma HistoryCasey Johnson fell into a diabetic coma twice and had to be hospitalized, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told Johnson had a history of diabetes and insulin syringes were found in her home after she died.

Johnson was taken at least once to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. We do not know specific dates of hospitalization, but we're told at least one incident occurred in the last year.

As we first reported, Johnson was found dead in her home yesterday.

Law enforcement tells us they believe she had been dead for several days.

No cause of death has been determined.

my brother died this way, too. If you are diabetic and a drinker, you are playing with fire. Alcohol dampens your body's ability to alert you if you are going into insulin reaction... which then progresses to insulin shock.... and then coma or death. Body temperature drops, etc. If you are found before death, you WILL suffer from permanent nerve damage/brain damage.

Too bad she wasn't just a stoner... have yet to hear of someone who smokes pot themselves to death.

i am in the healthcare field and many females use their insulin to manage their weight. Given how the upper class believes a person can't be too rich or too thin, I bet Ms. Johnson was doing the same with her insulin program.

It is sad for her and for the whole family.
However, for the Johnson family...they will be able to start the rest of their life without the constant worrying that it appears this family member caused them. Grief is always handled better than wondering where and how your child is doing.

Sad, sad, sad.



For people with Type 1 diabetes, insulin helps control their blood glucose level, but if they stop using it there is the side effect of weight loss.

A new report by the Centre for Adolescent Health has found a third of people are intentionally skipping their insulin for that very reason, and a half of those people are doing it daily.

To poster #49.

I, too, have a very wealthy family. We were very close and expected to EACH get our own accomplishments and not to use the family name and money to get ahead. I worked all through college, etc.
However, my Father would say "well, it doesn't matter what I do with my career because Dad is leaving the company to me". Knowing you have more money than you will ever spend just killed my Dad's motivation to achieve anything & he, therefore, didn't achieve anything except to become a gentlemen's drunk.

Once my grandfather got tired of my Dad's excuses, etc. he cut him off totally and, suddenly, my Father got motivated.
My grandfather was a Judge and one of his phrases he used in court to men who didn't want to get a job to pay child support was "well, hunger is a great motivator". So, here is the plan....
worked, too.

It's bad for the Johnson family to be dragged through the mud over this one relative.

Her parents live out east and may have been trying to contact her and weren't getting returned calls. A couple days without a return call is probably not unusual when dealing with adult children. Her father has a juvenile diabetes foundation in her honor and has campaigned tirelessly and raised alot of money for research with the disease. This is NOT a situation where any blame whatsoever should be cast towards her parents.

Why do these rich people often fill their life with drugs instead of something meaningful? A waisted life.

I don't agree the wealthy, NEGLIGENT parents aren't to blame. They cut her off, no phone, even though she had a serious medical condition, then didn't check on her. And yes, they didn't check on her, because they didn't ask anyone to check on her, if they couldn't reach her on the phone. You can count on the father knowing every detail about his team the Jets. It seems they were very negligent in how they handled her.

How is it that she is in a serious relationship, (with anyone), and is not noticed missing for days???? Especially with her circle. It makes a case against the "elite". No one is really your friend, I guess; not to mention fiance'.
