Dry mouth is not always due to diabetes, it can be due to unusual causes or some other illnesses to be evaluated by the special ist.

My oral hygiene is poor. My gums and teeth are not healthy. Despite frequent brushing, plaque is forming and causing bad smell. I was told that it is due to dry mouth.

Hi, Basil/tulsi leaves boiled in water and gargling salt water at least thrice a day also has good effect. Warm milk with turmeric or pepper works really well for cough when taken twice a day. Honey along with lemon has good anti-inflammation properties which soothes the throat and its better taken in the morning. Tea which is made of cinnamon and ginger once a day will alleviate the itching and pain sensation of throat. Make sure that you avoid cold foods or leftovers from refrigerator which might increase the condition. Inhaling hot air through vaporiser helps you feel better from chest and nasal blockage and clears the mucus. Avoid going out in to cold air and exposure to dust which might again increase your cough and cold. Decrease your intake of sugary foods and foods high in oil and fat which might prolong your illness.

What are the medicine for overcome dry mouth problem. How to overcome dry mouth problem.
The best way to treat dry mouth — known medically as xerostomia (zeer-o-STOE-me-uh) — depends on what's causing it. You can do some things to relieve dry mouth temporarily. But for the best long-term dry mouth remedy, you need to address its cause. To relieve your dry mouth: Chew sugar-free gum or suck on sugar-free hard candies to stimulate the flow of saliva. For some people, xylitol, which is often found in sugar-free gum or sugar-free candies, may cause diarrhea or cramps if consumed in large amounts. Limit your caffeine intake because caffeine can make your mouth drier. Don't use mouthwashes that contain alcohol because they can be drying. Stop all tobacco use if you smoke or chew tobacco. Sip water regularly. Try over-the-counter saliva substitutes — look for products containing xylitol, such as Mouth Kote or Oasis Moisturizing Mouth Spray, or ones containing carboxymethylcellulose (kahr-bok-see-meth-ul-SEL-u-lohs) or hydroxyethyl cellulose (hi-drok-see-ETH-ul SEL-u-lohs), such as Biotene Oral Balance. Try a mouthwash designed for dry mouth — especially one that contains xylitol, such as Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse or ACT Total Care Dry Mouth Mouthwash, which also offer protection against tooth decay. Especially one that contains xylitol, such as Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse or ACT Total Care Dry Mouth Mouthwash, which also offer protection against tooth decay. Avoid using over-the-counter antihistamines and decongestants because they can make your symptoms worse. Breathe through your nose, not your mouth. Add moisture to the air at night with a room humidifier. Saliva is important to maintain the health of your teeth and mouth. If you frequently have a dry mouth, taking these steps to protect your oral health may also help your condition: Avoid sugary or acidic foods and drinksbecause they increase your risk of tooth decay. Brush with a fluoride toothpaste — ask your dentist if you might benefit from prescription fluoride toothpaste. Use a fluoride rinse or brush-on fluoride gel before bedtime. Occasionally a custom-fit fluoride applicator (made by your dentist) can make this more effective. Visit your dentist at least twice yearly to detect and treat tooth decay or other dental problems. If these steps don't improve your dry mouth, talk to your doctor or dentist. The cause could be a medication or another condition. Medications are one of the most common causes of dry mouth. Long-term relief from your dry mouth may mean stopping or changing your medication or its dosage, or addressing underlying health issues.
