    Did Rich Piana die from an insulin overdose?

    Ok, before you read this take this article with a grain of salt. We really do not know what happened to Rich Piana and anything said now is just speculation. I still wanted to put this article up because it is informative in terms of insulin use and it really does seem possible that Rich could have died from an insulin overdose.

    Rumors Suggest That Bodybuilder Rich Piana Died From An Insulin Overdose
    Trending News: This Bodybuilder's Mysterious Death Is Stirring Up Controversy




    Long Story Short


    Medical examiners are still looking into Rich Piana's tragic sudden death, but a fitness expert has given voice to a rumor that suggests the famous bodybuilder died after taking too much insulin and neglecting to regulate his sugar.




    Long Story


    Rich Piana was no stranger to insulin, a hormone often taken by people with diabetes to regulate their blood sugar. In a video posted to YouTube four years ago, he decried how dangerous the hormone can be if you're not careful. Still, he uses it for muscle growth all the same.


    "The thing is, insulin works," he said, according to The Sun. "It definitely works and does what is supposed to do. And it is dangerous, but as long as you know what you are doing, everything can be fine. If you know what you are doing it is not dangerous, as long as you are taking the sugar which is necessary to match up the insulin you are taken."


    Bodybuilders take insulin because it works like an undetectable form of steroids. Could it be that Piana died suddenty at 46-years-old from the same thing that he warned about?


    Fitness expert Matt Fiddes alleges ó baselessly, I might add, as the medical examiner has not finalized the cause of death ó that Piana's sudden death in August at the age of 46 could have been due to insulin. Fiddes' theory is that Piana didn't consume enough sugar after taking insulin.


    ďHe would naturally take a pre-workout and then get to the photo shoot, do some press ups, some curls, get his body in condition and then come home,Ē Fiddes said to The Daily Star. ďThey have to eat enough sugar to balance the insulin just like a diabetic would, otherwise they will go into a coma and die. If the photoshoot dragged on a little bit he may not have eaten enough sugars to balance what insulin he would have taken."


    It's true that insulin is on the rise in the bodybuilding scene, according to a 2012 study. But is it possible Piana died from taking it?


    Sure, it's possible, but insulin deaths are pretty rare. A study published in the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics found that the vast majority, 89.4%, of insulin-related deaths were deliberate suicides. Piana's death happened suddenly while his girlfriend Chanel Jansen was giving him a haircut.


    Taking insulin unless you're diabetic is not a good plan. If you want something to boost your workout, try one of these pre-workout supplements instead.


    Ask The Big Question
    Why are people speculating when they don't know more than the medical examiner?


    Drop This Fact
    Piana took anabolic steroids for more than 30 years.

    As per the report from his girlfriend at the scene. It sounds more like a massive stroke or heart attack.

    Yeah I would find it hard to believe if slin in fact did take him out. He was far from a newbe to this life and guys taking slin for years definitely know what their doing.

    What happened to Rich could have been many factors. Letís face it, while I love Anabolics and what they do, taking them for years and taking high doses has its effect.

    I watched the video where Chanel was describing what happened and he was awake and getting his hair cut. He slumped forward and then he fell backward with his eyes wide open.

    It is all speculation unless someone makes the facts known publically.
