Side Effect of Diabetes Rarely Talked About

A recent study reveals that a good number of people with diabetes are at high risk of tooth loss. People with diabetes are advised to avoid sugary drinks and foods that may cause tooth decay.

Key takeaways:

  • People suffering from both type 1 and type 2 diabetes had on average ten missing teeth upon oral examination.
  • Diabetics were also at high risk of edentulism which is the total loss of teeth. Diabetics have a 28 percent greater risk of being toothless.
  • High blood sugar levels were found to disrupt the delivery of nutrients and the removal of waste from gum tissue leading to periodontitis and eventually tooth loss.

While those who have poorly controlled diabetes are most likely to experience tooth decay, even well-managed diabetics are more likely to suffer from periodontal disease.
