posted by Heather Leighton -

A bodybuilder's high-protein diet has been blamed for contributing to her sudden death at 25 years old, according to reports.

Meegan Hefford of Mandurah, Australia started bodybuilding in 2014 and she began a high-protein diet consisting of lean meats, egg whites and protein shake supplements, according to Perth Now.

Unknown to the mother of two, she had urea cycle disorder, a rare genetic disorder that stopped her body from properly breaking down protein and caused a build-up of ammonia in her blood and an accumulation of fluid in her brain, Perth Now reports.
