“As King Nebuchadnezzar grew in power and might, he also grew very prideful. As a warning to us, God used the king by punishing him. Pride is one of those things that God hates (Proverbs 8:13) and God made King Nebuchadnezzar an example. God drove the king from men and made him dwell with the beasts of the field. He roamed the wild land and was forced to eat grass for seven years. Finally, the king was brought ‘to his senses’ when he acknowledged God as the King of heaven, “because everything he does is right and all His ways are just. And those who walk in pride He is able to humble” (Daniel 4:37). The king died in 562 B.C. at the age of 68.”

I was specifically commenting on the length of his lost reasoning powers, not the cause. He didn't remain in that state the rest of his life.
Nebuchadnezzar learned the hard way to be humble before God.
