Save for later


Anyone using drugs risks seriously damaging their health. Drugs can affect people in different ways depending on the type, amount, and purity of the drug. They can also affect how you manage your diabetes. 

Some drugs slow you down, while others give you more energy and speed you up – both can make blood glucose levels go higher or lower.

Don't do it

Drugs – legal or not – can lead to problems with your health, the police, family and friends. The best way to avoid this is to avoid drugs, particularly the more addictive ones (which include nicotine).
