Diabetes mellitus should raise similar concerns to those associated with epilepsy because poorly controlled diabetes occasionally may be the direct cause of sudden death and, through its association with an increased incidence of arterial disease, it is a major factor in the development of coronary artery disease in the younger age groups. At postmortem, consideration must be given in all cases of sudden death in a young individual, particularly when there is a history of diabetes mellitus, to the sampling of the vitreous humor to determine the blood glucose level at the time of death. The samples must be taken as soon after death as possible to avoid postmortem use of the intraocular glucose yielding erroneous results (14).
