Gum Disease And Diabetes

Gum Disease And DiabetesPeople with diabetes are more likely to have gum disease than people without diabetes, probably because they are more susceptible to contracting infections. 

A recent study found that those with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes were more likely to develop periodontal disease than those with their diabetes well under control.  In addition, research has also emerged which suggests that gum disease may make it more difficult for people with diabetes to control their blood sugar. 

Severe gum disease can increase blood sugar, contributing to increased periods of time when the body functions with a high blood sugar and therefore increases the risk of diabetic complications.  A 1997 study in the Journal of Periodontology involving 113 Pima Indians with both diabetes and gum disease, found that when their gum infections were treated, the management of their diabetes markedly improved.
