No

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

Diabetes and hypertension do not result from abuse of codeine. As explained earlier it is analgesic which leads to dependence and tolerance.

Diabetes and hypertension result from poor life style such as sedentary, lack of activity, high salt intake, smoking, obesity and lack of exercise.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
