SKY HIGH: Are you inquiring about yourself or another? Diabetes is already a difficult problem with potential for eye, kidney, and nerve complications. Meth is a poison, and even in those folks who are otherwise healthy, can literally destroy health and life span. In short, for those who are contemplating self-destruction, meth will provide disaster. Stay safe, and get help asap.

Meth = deadly: Meth is deadly for people, whether diabetic or not. It's a stimulant like cocaine, forcing heart rate to high levels, elevating bp, disturbing heart rhythm, raising respiratory rate, and dysregulating temperature, etc. http://tinyurl.com/975jzbx those with existing heart disease (like some diabetics) are more vulnerable. Can also cause psychosis, paranoia, insomnia, and violent behavior.
