When someone experiences dilated cardiomyopathy, their heart is limited in it’s ability to pump blood.  Myocarditis is, be definition, inflammation of the heart muscle.

Fatty liver develops when a person’s body has created too much fat or was unable to metabolize fat at a quick enough pace.  The liver then stores the extra fat in liver cells.  This is not usually directly caused by eating a diet high in fat.  The most common causes of fatty liver are alcoholism, obesity, high levels of fat in the blood, diabetes, genetic inheritance, rapid weight loss or as a side effect of medications such as aspirin, steroids, Tetracycline or Tamoxifen.

George Michael passed away in his home in South England in Oxfordshire County on December 25, 2016 at the young age of 53.  The original autopsy failed to show his cause of death since he had passed away of natural causes.  There are no plans for any further investigation.
