A.
First of all, no one should be using crystal meth. I don't think I can possibly overstate this fact.

Methamphetamine has legitimate medical uses. However, crystal meth is an illegal street drug. It is not safe to use under any circumstances.

A person with failing kidneys certainly should not be using street drugs of any kind. Using crystal meth will accelerate kidney failure. If a person on dialysis is seeking a kidney transplant, crystal meth use is a sure way to get kicked off the transplant list.

Crystal meth is a highly addictive substance. If you are addicted to crystal meth, you should seek treatment for your addiction. Do not delay.

I wish you all the best.
