Diabetic coma of man, 28.
Martin Williams, of Wood Lane, was found in his bed by a friend, after his blood sugar levels shot up causing him to become hyperglycaemic.
The 28-year-old, who was described as "loving, enthusiastic and a friend to everyone" had been insulin dependent since birth.
Yesterday his dad Stephen Williams, of Pudsey said: "There is a safety triangle for people suffering from diabetes.
"It includes diet, insulin and exercise.
"If you miss out exercise or if you are suffering from a bad stomach, this can lead to problems.
"Martin was getting more and more insulin, and it appears he went to sleep with a very high blood sugar level and became hyperglycaemic.
"His friends wouldn't have been likely to have known what had happened."
Martin worked at the Heart Foundation shop, on Market Street in the town centre.
His colleagues there were saddened and shocked to hear of his death.
Stephen continued: "He was a very, very enthusiastic person, he got on so well with people and was so good with them.
"We have 16 grandchildren and every one of them loved him and he loved to be around them."
Coroner Professor Paul Marks recorded a verdict of natural causes.
