Coroner says Casey Johnson's cause of death related to diabetes

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles County coroner says socialite Casey Johnson’s death was related to diabetes.
    The coroner announced Thursday that the death of the Johnson &
Johnson heiress was caused by diabetic ketoacidosis
(kee-toh-as-i-DOH’-sis) — a life-threatening condition caused by
lack of insulin and sky-high blood sugar.
    The coroner conducted Johnson’s autopsy Jan. 5. Her body was
found a day earlier in her Los Angeles home.
    The 30-year-old daughter of New York Jets owner Robert “Woody”
Johnson lived a party life. In December, she announced her
engagement to bisexual reality TV star Tila (TEE’-lah) Tequila.
