From Missouri, USA:
My 19 year old son has been getting Ritalin since he was four years old (presently 30 mg three times per day). He was diagnosed with diabetes about a year and a half ago. Is it possible that the excess from his large dose of Ritalin collected in the pancreas and killed his insulin-producing cells?
No. There is no data and no literature and no experience. You can stop worrying.
