How Should Diabetic Patients Take Care Of Their Oral Health?

How Should Diabetic Patients Take Care Of Their Oral Health?

If your diabetes is not under control, you are more likely to develop problems in your mouth. The good news is you can keep your teeth and gums healthy. By controlling your blood glucose, brushing and flossing every day, and visiting a dentist regularly, you can help prevent serious problems in your mouth.

The Symptoms of Untreated Diabetes

The warning signs of diabetes affect every part of your body. After a blood test, you may be told by a doctor that you have high blood sugar. You may feel excessively thirsty or have to urinate a lot. Weight loss and fatigue are other common symptoms. Diabetes can also cause you to lose consciousness if your blood sugar falls too low. 

If diabetes is left untreated, it can take a toll on your mouth as well. Here's how:

  1. You may have less saliva, causing your mouth to feel dry. (Dry mouth is also caused by certain medications.)
  2. Because saliva protects your teeth, you’re also at a higher risk of cavities.
  3. Gums may become inflamed and bleed often (gingivitis).
  4. You may have problems tasting food.
  5. You may experience delayed wound healing.
  6. You may be susceptible to infections inside of your mouth.
  7. For children with diabetes, teeth may erupt at an age earlier than is typical.

Diabetes is a chronic, systemic disease and affects all parts of the body. While its effect on the nerves, eyes, kidneys, and skin is more common, their oral effects are less known. However, diabetes will vouch how they lost tooth and have dry mouth after their sugars went out of control.

  1. Oral Symptoms in Diabetics: There is a strong correlation between oral health and poorly controlled blood sugars. Some of the common oral indications of diabetes are as follows.
  2. Dry Mouth: There is less amount of saliva, which brings with it a whole lot of symptoms including soreness of the mucosa, ulcers, increased chances of infection, gum inflammation and tooth decay.
  3. Thrush: The saliva has higher sugar levels and attracts fungus (Candida in particular) which thrives in this dry, sugary environment. This produces a burning sensation in the mouth.
  4. Periodontal Disease: The gums get severely infected with gingival recession, where the gum line recedes exposing more of the tooth (tooth length seems to have increased). There is “pocket” formation, or space between the tooth and the gum which hosts a variety of bacteria. The periodontal ligament loses its strength to hold the tooth in place, and thereby teeth become mobile. If not worked upon in time, there could be multiple teeth lost.

Why People with Diabetes Are More Prone to Gum Disease

All people have more tiny bacteria living in their mouth now than there are people on this planet. If they make their home in your gums, you can end up with periodontal disease. This chronic, inflammatory disease can destroy your gums, all the tissues holding your teeth and even your bones.

Periodontal disease is the most common dental disease affecting those living with diabetes, affecting nearly 22% of those diagnosed. Especially with increasing age, poor blood sugar control increases the risk for gum problems. In fact, people with diabetes are at a higher risk for gum problems because of poor blood sugar control. As with all infections, serious gum disease may cause blood sugar to rise. This makes diabetes harder to control because you are more susceptible to infections and are less able to fight the bacteria invading the gums.

As much as it sounds alarming, it is not. There are easy, simple ways to manage these. In fact, good overall management of diabetes will ensure the oral symptoms are also maintained under control. Following are some things to do which will help in managing diabetes in general and the oral symptoms in particular:

As soon as diabetes is diagnosed, visit a dentist to take stock of the oral health condition. Any identified problem should be treated to avoid progression.

  1. Keep a close watch to ensure blood sugar remains as close to normal as possible.
  2. Switch to a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles. This will help reduce the pressure on the gums and thereby prevent gum bleeding
  3. After every meal, remember to brush the teeth.
  4. Flossing at least once a day will help remove food deposits between the teeth. Alternately, use interdental brushes.
  5. Rinse at least twice daily using an antiseptic mouthwash.
  6. Denture-wearers should always clean them daily and never go to sleep with the denture in the mouth.
  7. Smoking with diabetics is a strict no-no, work on quitting at the earliest.
  8. Visit a dentist every 3 months to ensure oral issues are identified at the earliest and treatment done with minimal intervention.
  9. Any dental procedure should be done only when sugar levels are under control.

Managing diabetes is a lifelong commitment, and that includes proper dental care. Your efforts will be rewarded with a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

When ever you feel hungry eat food which is low fiber and easy to digest. Due to this food will digest very fast and you will feel hungry again I think your whole biological clock is disturb. Manage your biological clock. Like set your wake up and sleep timing. Make time table for your self like I will be wake up 7 a. M in morning and go to bed at 11. P. M. So same with lunch time. Right now if you can`t eat 4 to 5 meal it is ok. Fix your timing for main two meal for lunch and dinner. Lunch at 1. P. M and dinner at 9 p. M. Try to follow this time table. Your biological clock will be set automatically. And your whole problem is going to disappear slowly.

Hello Lybrate user, High cholesterol increases your risk of heart disease and heart attacks. 1. Eat heart-healthy foods. Choose leaner cuts of meat, low-fat dairy and monounsaturated fats — found in olive and canola oils — for healthier options. Avoid trans fats found in fried foods and chips, etc. 2. Eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Have fish (salmon) walnuts, almonds and ground flaxseeds. 3. You can add soluble fiber to your diet by eating oats and oat bran, fruits, beans, lentils, and vegetables. 4. Moderate physical activity can help raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol. 5. If you smoke, stop. Quitting might improve your HDL cholesterol level.

Probably menopausal symptoms. Nothing to worry about. It will subside in a few months to years. You are definitely obese and have to do regular exercise especially if you are postmenopausal. You have to reduce weight to around 60 - 65 kgs which is your upper limit. Taking vitamin d tablets is of no use if you do not exercise your bones regularly. Last of all, if your vitamin d deficiency was proven by a lab test at the time of diagnosis initially, then repeat it to see if it has normalised.

Mismatch due to age difference. Declining hormones in woman and normal hormones in man. Though it is not a medical problem to be discussed on a forum, do take a decision about this social problem before you are caught in some legal hassles as law favors woman and you will be wasting rest of your life in jails in and out, wasting money on lawyers. Take a decision fast and get rid of this mess. I do not see an iota of love in this marriage. Religion is secondary. Woman gains as she gets social security but what do you get - you annoyed your parents only to be dominated by an elderly woman.

If you do not have backache you can do exercises for toning your belly fat. Spot reduction is not possible unless you lose overall fat. So a well balanced diet is needed. Eat frequent meals atleast 6meals per day. Avoid carbohydrates at night. Avoid raw foods at night. Avoid junk foods and fried foods. If you want a personalised target oriented diet plan you can consult me.

I am 16 yrs old and I weigh 75 kgs. I feel odd while standing with my friends what can I do to reduce this weight?

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. Also your weight does not determine your beauty or health. Be confident about yourself. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

To gain weight, eat food with extremely high caloric value. Try to increase your food intake without consuming too much fat and sugar. Regular meals, especially breakfast are important if you find it difficult to gain weight. Eat late - having snacks at bedtime may help to gain weight. Relax after having meal. Eat frequently- eat five or more meals a day. Do regular exercise. Take ashwagandha churna with water twice a day.

Avoid more of carbohydrates like rice, pasta etc. Eat more vegeatbles, limit intake of fruits general guidelines: early morning: one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes. Or drink tomato juice with salt and pepper every morning on an empty stomach. Intake of 6 almonds (soaked overnight) is also helpful in keeping a check on diabetes. Breakfast: whole grains, oats, millet with high fiber vegetable/salad mid morning; apple/organe 100 gm lunch: salad 15 min before lunch dal, phulka, vgetable curry/veg soup/buttermilk evening tea/green tea/lime tea +2 fiber biscuits /roasted chana mid evening salad of mix vegetable and sprouts an hour before dinner dinner phluka 2, lauki veg, curd bed time skim milk with diet an hour of exercise is a must.
