The medical expert, who also appeared on Channel 5 makeover show 10 Years Younger in 10 Days, passed away on Friday September 15 aged 53.
Now, it's been revealed Dr Uchenna's cause of death was a subarachnoid haemorrhage.
A family spokesperson told MailOnline: "Dr Uchenna's sudden death was due to natural causes. We are devastated, and our hearts are broken that her beautiful, full life has been cut so short.
"As a family, our priority right now is to take care of her young daughter and continue her legacy and keep her memory alive. A private celebration of her life will be held in the coming weeks."
It comes after her personal assistant and "bestie buddy" for 20 years Mars Webb described how Dr Okoye had a normal "busy week" before suddenly passing away.
