Methamphetamine can cause leukocytosis (high numbers of white blood cells circulating in the blood), hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), high CPK (muscle enzymes leaking from damaged muscle cells), high liver enzymes (leaking from damaged liver cells), low sodium (abnormally low sodium level in the blood), etc...

Yes


any stimulant, and even the hormones we produce ourselves under stress (adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine) can cause the release of white blood cells from the walls of our blood vessels. This occurs with cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, and can even happen when prescription stimulants are used. It is a sign that the drug is having adverse effects on your body. Stop - get help if needed.

Many reasons


Reasons methamphetamine causes rampant tooth decay may include: its ability to dry the mouth, reducing the amount of protective saliva around teeth a drug-induced craving for sugary soft drinks the habit of users to grind and clench their teeth how long the drug's effects last (up to 12 hours), which can lead to long periods when users are not likely to clean their teeth

 Dry mouth Teething Mouth Saliva Enamel Plaque Tooth decay Teeth Dental care Methamphetamine Methamphetamine abuse Caries

Dry mouth, soda


Methamphetamine causes dry mouth aka xerostomia. The saliva natural cleanses the teeth and buffers acidic plaque. Plaque acids are what eat away at enamel and causes tooth decay. Meth addicts with dry mouth tend to moisten their mouths with inexpensive sugary sodas which makes the problem even worse. Also meth addicts are largely consumed with getting more meth rather than oral hygiene.

No reports yet


There are no reports of this association. Meth is associated with severe and irreversible kidney disease usually an interstitial nephritis. There's a first time for everything and meth effects may be worsened by concomitant use of heroin or LSD. Bottom line: Stay away from the meth. Meth kills you badly and makes you look awful while you die.

No, but...


As far as I know methamphetamine isn't a carcinogen, but it us a powerful agent in the brain and it would create a major risk of brain damage to use it during pregnancy. Of course it is also dangerous to adults, a potential cause of sudden death, and by the way illegal. Just don't use it.
