Avicii dead at 28.

A beautiful tribute…


The official cause of Tim Berling’s death has yet to be announced, but he struggled with health issues, namely pancreatitis. He, at one point, while touring, had to be hospitalized to have his gallbladder removed. The gallbladder is a villain of the pancreas often contributing to problems that challenge the proper working of this organ. Pancreatitis can be caused by many different factors. Drinking alcohol is the most common, in Tim’s case this was a confirmed, contributing factor. Anyone who experiences pancreatitis knows the more stress in your life, the more severe your pancreas issues are. Once the pancreas quits working, all the other organs in your body start shutting down, ceasing to work and causing death. We have yet to hear the official cause of death but Tim Berling’s loss to the music world is universal, for his family a tragedy to lose this young performer, at the age of 28.

Acute and chronic pancreatitis is a killer. We must pay more attention to this silent and usually deadly disease. I suffered from idiopathic pancreatitis for years and almost lost my battle. There was no wonder drug and very little standardized treatment protocols. 

Rest in Peace, Avicii.



    1. My heart just aches for this young man and his family. 28! I just cannot imagine… so sad. I was diagnosed with pancreatitis and hospitalized 11 times for it. I had 7 surgeries in 2 years. I signed two DNRs. I was so ill. My diagnosis was idiopathic, meaning they couldn’t figure out why it was happening. I had my gall-bladder removed and stents put in, a calcium deposit removed… it was touch and go… it is incredibly hard to treat. Obviously so many lose their battle.

        1. Guess I have more to learn! My husband, even though we said our goodbyes always whispered to me, please try to wake up. I promised I would. And I’m not one to break a promise. It was very scary… my mother-in-law calls me her miracle daughter. I’m just surprised to still be here. Its OK Bojana, I was meant to meet you! xoxo

        1. You are very kind. Thank you for stopping to read and take notice of the tragic loss of Avicii. Pancreatitis does not discriminate and there is much more research needed to learn to treat this very painful, deadly disease. I am very fortunate to be alive and I take nothing for granted anymore. I thank you for following!!! ~Kim
