Shocking news have circulated the internet that Casey Johnson has died from Diabetes Ketoasidosis, a complication often associated with poor diabetes management. “Dr. Michael Baden, former chief medical examiner in New York City, said Johnson probably slipped into a diabetic coma, but people can usually be resuscitated from that in the first 24 hours.”
Johnson, the daughter of New York Jets owner Robert “Woody” is also the heir to the Johnson & Johnson health care products fortune. Of course, Johnson & Johnson is the owner of Animas corporation, one of the biggest makers of Insulin pumps.
One can only begin to imagine the effect this unfortunate event will have on Animas. Johnson lived a party life. In December, she announced her engagement to bisexual reality TV star Tila Tequila. Its very sad that someone with all the resources to have great control of the condition has ended this way.
