The answers make sense. Such a loss, so young.

I suspect anorexia is going to surface as a cause.

I agree it was ruled natural causes as her body failed and she died. No foul play, or even a OD.

This is my take on it: She died because she did not take good care of herself:

What we know for sure:
-smoked
-drank a lot of coffee
-took lots of Rx pills
-did not eat healthy, was too thin
-lived a stressful life
-was diabetic
-had a heart condition

Other possibilities:
-possibly drank a lot of alcohol now or in the past
-possibly did drugs

You can tell she lived the party girl lifestyle in her 20's and it finally caught up to her.

It is tragic and she will be greatly missed. I liked her and thought she was a great actress... RIP

how do you know there isn't an o.d. issue?
has the toxicology report been completed and released yet?
i heard there were a number or prescription bottles present as well as some bottles in her place that were prescribed for other people.
seems like a combination of prescription meds and perhaps a weak heart due to, anorexia or bulimia?
and also, it was reported that she had flu like symptoms the night before she died.
if she was really weakened due to a variety of reasons, that flu could have been too much for her.

they are saying natural causes but they are awaiting toxicology results which take 4-6 weeks to complete. Natural for now until further testing is complete..It wasn't anything obvious like an abdominal aortic aneurysm,myocardial infarction, brain aneurysm,etc...

I don't know for sure, but I just have a feeling it may not be a OD. She was sick and frail looking the days before she died.

Natural causes...basically means that a person died from a body part that malfunctions or quit working as it was originally intended at birth.

Drugs...Alcohol...overdose of prescription medicine will do a number on the system.

Generally a newspaper report of Natural Causes is a polite term instead of being direct as to a persons demise. With no visible cause of death and NO Autopsy being performed...Natural Causes is the way to go. In some cases an Autopsy may not be warranted.
