Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics

Top Five Tips From The Dentist For Diabetics
Among the many health risks of diabetes is a decline in oral health that makes patients more vulnerable to gum disease. According to dental professionals, this happens because diabetes slows the body's circulation, making the gums more susceptible to infection. The metabolic disorder also increases glucose (sugar) levels in saliva, which fuels the growth of dental plaque that attacks the teeth and gums. To protect against the disorder, follow these simple tips.

1. Visit your dentist regularly.

Because diabetics are at a much higher risk of gum disease than the average patient, you should never miss a dental appointment. In fact, you should schedule regular checkups two to four times a year. With professional cleanings and regular examinations, common mouth conditions, such as ulcers, dry mouth, and infections can be controlled. To prevent bouts of low blood sugar, it may be a good idea to eat before you see your dentist. It is also crucial that you inform him or her of any oral problems you may be having -- no matter how minor they may seem.

2. Follow a strict oral hygiene regimen.

All diabetics should and really must brush and floss daily, preferably after every meal. This will help remove the plaque that can cause gum disease, thereby lowering your risk for mouth ulcers and infections. It is recommended that you complete your oral hygiene routine at least three times a day. Because your risk of oral infection is elevated, it is important to avoid aggressive brushing that can cause cuts and sores. You may even want to use a soft-bristled brush or an electric model for a safer, more comfortable brushing experience.

3. Control your blood sugar.

As we mentioned, sugar stimulates plaque growth, which causes tooth decay and gum disease. Because diabetics have more glucose (sugar) in their blood, they also tend to have a lot more plaque on their teeth. But if you can keep your blood sugar low, you can reduce your risk of periodontal disease.

4. Don't smoke.

In a perfect world, nobody would smoke -- especially people with diabetes. The unhealthy activity causes a laundry list of serious complications, including oral infections and periodontal diseases. According to dental professionals, smoking can more than double your risk of cavities and infections.

5. Clean your dentures.

If you have diabetes and you wear false teeth, you are more prone to developing oral thrush -- a fungal infection of the mouth. Typically caused by denture irritation or wear, thrush can be prevented with regular cleaning. It is also recommended that you remove your dentures in between meals to give any irritated tissue the opportunity to heal. Your dentist might also advise you to limit your sugar intake when your mouth is bothered or raw.

I am type 1 diabetic for 15 years, on novo mixtard 30/70 twice a day until last month. For last two years, my hba1c is disturbed. Recently after making a regular note of the my blood glucose levels throughout the day, for two months now, my doctor switched me to novomix 30/70. Even after that, the blood glucose levels, specially after lunch, arnd 7 pm, were elevated. Please note that I took insulin at breakfast and dinner time. Then I started taking it three times a day, before each meal. Now the blood glucose levels are better after lunch, but very sporadic in the morning over the last one week. I am also having problems in controlling hypoglycemic episodes. I have had many instances, when, fot example, if my fasting blood glucose level came out to be 60, and I took 5-10 gms of glucose, it shot upto 250. I am shocked because the ada advises 15 gms of glucose in an hypoglyic event. I have observed this in general, that whatever I eat (i eat mainly low glcyemic foods), my body's glucose senstivity is so high, that my blood glucose levels shoot up enormously. I am also suffering from hypothroidism for three years now. Recently, my urine microalbuminuria levels came out to be 180 microgram/mg of creatinine (two readings, spaced out over a month). In addition to insulin, I am also taking thyronorm 75 mg soon after I wake up, glycomet 500mg before each meal, voglibose 0.2 mg after breakfst and lunch, nervz-b after brkfst, telmisartan 20 mg after breakfast and storvas 10 mg at night. Please suggest what can I do to have a tighter blood glucise control, advise if I need to make dietary changes, chanes in insulin type or any other medications.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
The problem may lie in any of the three i) the dose and type of insulin is not properly tuned or working and it is not cared by your consultant. Ii) your diet is not properly planned and some how not matching your need or iii) your lab is giving wrong reports. For first two you can discuss your diabetologist he is suppose to give you a logical answer acceptable to a knowledgeable person like you. You are quite an educated person and aware of your disease. Your awareness about diabetes is quite commendable, I felt. So I believe none can give you any bullshit. If you feel it is not satisfactory you have right to change your consultant. Look sir, 5-10 g of glucose can never shoot you blood glucose from 60 to 250 mg%. They are giving wrong report. Your microalbumin / creatinine ratio is alarmingly high. It is indicating towards diabetic nephropathy. There must be some lack somewhere - either in medicine side or from your side that you have not compiled properly with advises. I am afraid you need a second opinion from a reputed institution's diabetic care unit.

Diabetes affects all organs in the body ? Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient and doctor should be in constant touch for regular follow up and advice. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose ? SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch.

Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Drink more water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Tests every 3 to 6 months.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have diabetes then it is not advisable to have honey as it is mainly sucrose. It is really not much different from sugar, but does contain some additional substances like antioxidents and a few vitamins. Taking it in larger quantity is going to affect blood glucose. Thanks.
