On February 10, 2004, Mrs. Atkins released a statement clarifying details about her husband’s health. She confirmed that, in fact, her late husband Dr. Atkins did have coronary artery disease.

In particular, she said that Dr. Atkins “did have some progression of his coronary artery disease in the last three years of his life including some new blockage of a secondary artery that was remedied during this admission….” Artery blockages of this type are typically caused by high-fat, high-cholesterol diets, smoking, and other lifestyle factors.

Within a year and a half following Dr. Atkins death, Atkins Nutritionals Inc. goes bankrupt.
