For those of you who love popping weight loss pills, be warned.

A teacher in Bangkok was found dead in a bedroom in her dad's house after allegedly taking a dose of weight loss pills.

Reports said Chalida Watanasin, 32, was found yesterday afternoon about 8.45am by her father who realised she had not got up.

Chalida, a private school teacher was visiting her gather, Somkiart and her son in the Trang Muang district.

A doctor, who inspected the body, said there was no trace of injury though there were traces of foam at the mouth. The doctor believed Chalida had died about six to eight hours earlier.

Three packs of weight-loss pills were found in the room, with two pills missing.

According to The Nation, the doctor believes she took the pills before going to bed and succumbed to heart failure. 

Chalida’s friend Janthima Chunyong, 34, told police that Chalida had bought the pills on April 5.

The body has been sent for autopsy at the Songkla Nagarind Hospital in Songkhla’s Hat Yai district.
