Hello Mr.folmar;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you had been diabetic for 10 yrs then you need to keep a watch on your sugar and should have been under treatment or supervision of doctor and you should have avoided all drugs.It is 3 yrs but never too late to quit addiction.The basic thing required for quitting any form of addiction is your own will.If you decide nothing can stop you.So first of all decide firmly that you need to quit addiction of meth and then consult a rehabilitation center where you will get help for de addiction.Please consult your doctor and find out the status of your diabetes and he will guide you for rehabilitation.
