(Newser) – Casey Johnson died of “natural” causes and a disregard for her own well-being, the LA County coroner said today. The 30-year-old diabetic hadn’t been taking her insulin or other medications, hadn’t been exercising, and hadn’t been following the strict diet doctors prescribed for her. The official cause of death was “Diabetic Ketoacidosis,” the technical name for a diabetic coma, TMZ reports.
