Anesthesiologist 's  Response
helo sir/madam.goodevening. thanks for query. as per the detail given by u , two things clear 1diabetic 2 anaemic < hb 7 >. but there no information about cbc < tlc,dlc,>, LFT,KFT,AND XRAY CHEST, SO IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO COMMENT ON CAUSE OF DEATH. THIS IS NOT CLEAR THAT SHE WAS ON INSULIN OR NOT OR WHAT TREATMENT SHE WAS TAKING FOR ABOVE MENTIONED COMPLAINT. IN POORLY TREATED DIABETIC PATIENTS , INFECTIONS AND HYPOGLYEMIC EPISODES, SILENT HEART ATTACKS R COMMON . LOW Hb level ,foaming from mouth and cold limbs are in favour of silent heart attack . thanks
