Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

     This description is highly suggestive of Pulmonary Embolism.
     Asymptomatic heart attacks are very common in diabetics...
     Renal failure may be from shock, infection and so on
     Only a post-mortem might have given the clues...

Take care
May her soul rest in peace
God bless
Good luck
