johnny cash and diabetesJohnny Cash is a household name. Even if the music genre was not a person’s style, they would still enjoy Johnny Cash. He was a legend in his own time. Cash was born in 1932 and originally from Kingsland, Arkansas. He was famous for his black suit attire. Even though, Cash has had trouble with the law many years during his life and landed in prison. He still sung songs of hope. This brought joy to many people. Some of his more inspired works include “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire” and “A Boy Named Sue”. He died in 2003 from complications of diabetes. Cash was 71 years old.

Around 1997, Cash began experiencing health problems. He was having issues with autonomic neuropathy. This was a complication related to his diabetes. He was in and out of hospitals; this made Cash stop touring and focus on his family. His loving wife died a few months before he did. She made Cash promise to continue recording all the way to the end. Complications from diabetes have shortened the life of a number of celebrities. If Johnny Cash had not had diabetes, music lovers might have enjoyed his deep voice for a while longer.
