Cause of the death of just about everyone can be traced back to each one's lifestyle given a few parameters.
In the case of Saigal, it was pure and simple weakness of mind and his total disregard and mental inability to either comprehend or follow the simple dictates that one should, if diagnosed with diabetes at an early age. Compounded with the fact that the vent to his boredom and perceived frustration with it having come into a seizable amount of wealth and fame, he simply refused to believe that he was an ordinary mortal with a voice made immortal thanks to the technology available then and the media that made him the first superstar of bollywood.
The combination of these factors, further exaggerated with alcohol (the immediate and terminal promoter), killed him earlier than he could comprehend.
The real immediate factor? Too much money.

Alcohol caused his terminal suffering. He had become so much dependent on alcohol that when he was asked to sing his "Hum Jee ke kya karenge" song without taking alcohol, he sang but pressed for a retake after having a drink. Incidentally the song after drinking was chosen for inclusion because the one without alcohol had a lot of quivering in his voice and hence was discarded.

K L Sehgal a great singer His songs were very good Zindagi khwaab hai ..Sooja Rajakumari and Some songs & acting in Devdaas was very nice. He was alchoholic and may be that He had other ailments ..which were not detectable during those days..All these were perhaps the reasons for his death .

, alcohol had become a predominant factor in Saigal's life. His dependence on alcohol had begun affecting his work and his health. It was said that he could only record a song after being fortified with liquor. He survived ten years of drinking, however, his alcoholism was too advanced for even a single attempt at abstinence, and Saigal died in his ancestral city of Jalandhar on January 18, 1947, at the age of 42...!!!

A great artist, a great man, Saigal belongs to the class of human beings who defy death. He is immortal. K.L Saigal Memorial To commemorate his work,!!
