      Default Coroner: Bubba Smith died from overdose of diet pills

      Coroner: Bubba Smith died from overdose of diet pills
      By Chris Chase


      Bubba Smith died from an overdose of diet pills, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner report released Wednesday.
      TMZ reported that the official coroner's report on Smith's Aug. 3 death listed "acute phentermine intoxication" as the first cause of death. Phentermine is a drug used to speed weight loss by suppressing appetite.
      The former Indianapolis Colts All-Pro, who became famous for roles in film, television and commercials after his career, was found dead this summer in his Los Angeles home. At the time, authorities believed the 66-year-old died of natural causes.
      Smith was the first pick of the 1967 draft, won a Super Bowl with the Colts during the 1970 season and made an All-Pro team as a defensive end in 1971. He later appeared in the "Police Academy" movies and memorable advertisements from Miller Lite.

      And also .........
      According to Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter, Smith's ongoing condition of atherosclerosis, or the thickening of the artery walls of his heart, along with a history of hypertension were also contributing factors in his passing.

      Atherosclerosis, sometimes called “hardening of the arteries,” occurs when fat (cholesterol) and calcium build up in the inner lining of the arteries, forming a substance called plaque. Over time, the fat and calcium buildup narrows the artery and blocks blood flow through it.

      When atherosclerosis affects the arteries that supply blood to the heart, it can restrict blood flow to the heart muscle, causing heart pain (angina), irregular heartbeats (arrhythmia), and other problems. Plaque may burst open the artery lining, causing blood clots that can block blood flow, which in turn may cause a heart attack and cause damage to the heart muscle. Atherosclerosis in the heart (coronary) arteries is called coronary artery disease.
      When atherosclerosis affects the arteries that supply blood to the brain, it may cause a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or stroke.
      Atherosclerosis can affect arteries in other parts of the body, such as the pelvis and legs, causing poor circulation, slower healing of skin injuries, and erection problems.
      A major part of treating atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease involves lifestyle changes (such as quitting smoking) and medications to help reduce high cholesterol, control high blood pressure, and manage other factors that increase a person's risk of heart attack, stroke, and other complications.

      Phentermine in itself is hard on the heart.
