Impacts of Substance use/abuse on Diabetes

The outreach coordinator, Leah Dupre at recently made me aware of a good resource that advances awareness and understanding of the impacts of substance use on diabetes.

Dr. Karen Vieira, PhD MSM has created “a comprehensive resource on the implications, contraindications and the latest research regarding substance abuse and diabetes.”
The link below will take you to, “..a comprehensive 6,000 word research piece, and it is the product of our shared desire to help prevent and treat harms associated with diabetes and substance abuse. It includes easily-understood graphic elements, 31 supporting citations of landmark research and authority sources (seen at the bottom) and answers for the most common questions regarding diabetes, alcohol and every major drug of abuse.”

You can navigate numerous topics by placing the cursor over the “Skip to Section” button.

The comprehensive nature of this resource affirms the interrelated nature of all of the body’s physiological systems with the progression and consequences of having any kind of diabetes diagnosis.

What we put into our bodies truly affects our whole being.
