Diabetes and Oral Health- Tips For Diabetics

Diabetes and Oral Health- Tips For Diabetics

We know that diabetes can harm your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other important systems in your body. But did you know it can also cause dental and gum problems in your mouth?

The link between diabetes and oral problems is real, though lesser known. Diabetics are at a higher risk for periodontal or gum disease which is an infection of the gum and bone that hold your teeth in place.

Untreated periodontal disease can lead to pain on chewing and even tooth loss, if it’s left untreated. Gum disease can also more severe and take longer to heal if you are a diabetic.

Research also shows that alternatively, periodontal disease may also make it hard for you to control your blood glucose.

If your diabetes is not under control, you are more likely to develop problems in your mouth like-

  1. Dry mouth, a condition that happens when you do not have enough saliva—the fluid that keeps your mouth wet. It is a common symptom of undetected diabetes and can also cause mouth soreness, ulcers, infections, and tooth decay.
  2. Another problem diabetes can cause is a fungal infection called thrush or candidiasis because diabetes usually causes the glucose levels in your saliva to increase. And this encourages the fungus causing thrush to grow in your mouth, leading to painful white patches.
  3. When diabetes is not controlled, high glucose levels in your saliva also help harmful bacteria grow in your mouth. These bacteria combine with food particles to form a soft, sticky film called plaque which causes tooth decay. Plaque also comes from eating sugary and starchy foods.
  4. And some types of plaque cause tooth decay or cavities and other types of plaque cause gum disease and bad breath.
  5. Diabetics have a higher incidence of Gingivitis which causes unhealthy, red, inflamed gums. You need regular flossing as well as cleaning at the dentists to prevent it.

What can you do?

  1. You must keep your blood glucose under control to prevent mouth problems. Diabetics with poor blood glucose control get gum disease more often and more severely than diabetics whose blood sugar is under control.
  2. If you have diabetes, you should brush and floss every day and follow this up with regular dental check-ups.
  3. Call your dentist when you notice a problem in your mouth. Keep observing and checking your mouth regularly for any problems. Don’t ignore minor stuff like gum bleeding during brushing and flossing. And also notice dryness, soreness, white patches, or a bad taste in the mouth. All of these are big enough reasons to visit your dentist.
  4. Tell your dentist if your dentures suddenly don’t fit right or if your gums are sore.

Also, take care to quit smoking. Smoking makes gum disease worse and causes dry mouth which aggravates oral problems.

Needless to add, good blood glucose control is your best defence against the oral complications of diabetes like gum disease. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.

please get in touch with a competent podiatric surgeon (a surgeon expert in handling diabetic foot problems). Along with that surgeon and your physician have to jointly help you to overcome this problem. It is a serious condition. If you do not take care further damage may occur.

Recently I am diagnosed with sugar. Random reading came to 210. Fasting 120 1 and PP 190. I am 28. My father was heavily diabetic and he died due to stroke. According to my readings is it necessary to go for treatment? As I hv heard that if I start the treatment it will go for long. Or is there natural ways to lower sugar levels.

There is no reason to feel low. Just start taking some precautions regarding diet and exercise regularly to maintain your weight. Get reular blood sugar monitoring monthly and when you find blood sugar out of range with diet and exercise start medicine under supervision of a Physician.

There is no problem in taking both together. If your sugar level not controlled even after taking these medicine then necessary to consult your doctor. Ayurveda better help you for controlling the sugar level and also prevent from complication of diabetes like diabetic retinopathy nephropathy neuropathy etc. Diet management is must in this disease, regular exercise and walking yoga pranayam etc.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

Mr. lybrate-user Kumar, Thanks for the query. The mentioned blood glucose levels look fairly good, showing very good control. Please check HbA1c%, which will give an idea of long term control. It is good to see you have been able to achieve such a good control. Continue the same. Controlled diet and regular exercise are very important in achieving an exemplary glucose control. Please continue the same. Thanks.
