I've been watching documentaries and stuff recently and going down the 70's rabbit hole. I've read some stuff about her and her passing and tbh I'm a big fan of hers, both from her music and as someone who relates to having anorexia, the whole story about her simultaneously depresses me while also being a huge trigger. One thing that I've been confused on after reading about her is whether refeeding syndrome (rapid weight gain during recovery) caused her death. Some sources, including a coroner, say it was due to emetics, while I've seen other things saying it was due to refeeding, or thyroid enhancement, or general potassium loss. The whole story is behind her death is odd since she tested for only .5 mg of emetine and had through the roof blood sugar. Do people know what caused her passing? Or was the science around EDs back then so blurry that people weren't able to draw a concise conclusion?
Edit: so sorry about how the post went through so many times for some reason. Apparently this has been happening alot, it's occured before.
