It is related to diabetes. You gotta know that diabetes harms the vessels! It makes the vessels very fragile and easy to rupture. it is very common to see strokes in diabetics. Your son had diabetic coma, so it is reasonably expected that his blood sugar was poorly controlled. So it is no wonder he had brain bleeding.

A diabetic coma occurs when a person with diabetes loses consciousness. It can occur in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. A diabetic coma occurs when blood sugar levels become either too low or too high. A diabetic coma would also cause brain damages, such as brain swelling or minor bleeding.
