If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, or are one of the millions who are but don't know it, you could have hidden conditions in your mouth that are increasing your risk of premature death by up to 8 times!
Health risks from diabetes
According to CDC statistics anywhere from 34% to 48% of adults have diabetes or pre-diabetes, and many don't know it.
Almost half of all adults age 65 years or older are pre-diabetic, which means they have high blood sugar that is damaging their health, and are heading towards full blown diabetes.
And that's scary number when you consider that diabetes is an ugly, devastating disease because it affects virtually every organ system in your body.
- Increases death from heart disease by 2-4 times
- Increases your risk of stroke by 2-4 times
- Is the leading cause of blindness
- Is the leading cause of kidney failure
- Is the leading cause of limb amputations
- Causes birth defects in 5-10% of pregnancies
- Causes spontaneous abortions in 15-20% of pregnancies
- Increases the rate of sexual dysfunction
- At least doubles your risk of premature death
- Makes blood vessel walls more susceptible to formation of damaging plaques that ultimately rupture and cause heart attack and stroke.
What's worse is that up to 75% of adults have hidden INFLAMMATION in their mouths.
When you combine the high incidence of blood sugar problems, with the high incidence of oral inflammation, well that is a recipe for disaster!
Diabetes and gum disease
- Diabetics are twice as likely to develop gum disease.
- Gum disease makes it more difficult for the diabetic to control blood sugar levels.
- Diabetics with severe gum disease have a premature death rate eight times higher than diabetics without gum disease.
- Diabetics with gum disease have 3 times the risk of dying from combined heart and kidney failure.
- Gum disease in diabetics is an accurate predictor of end-stage kidney disease.
- Gum disease increases the likelihood that pre-diabetes will progress to full blown diabetes.
- The rate of tooth loss in diabetics is 15 times higher than in non-diabetics.
- Diabetes may increase the likelihood of gum disease in multiple ways:
- Diabetes compromises the blood vessels that bring nutrients and immune system cells into the gum tissue.
- Diabetes reduces the effectiveness of immune system, and decreases your body’s ability to repair tissue injured by inflammation.
- Collagen is a major building block for gum tissue and diabetes limits the body’s ability to deposit collagen in your gum tissue.
The bottom line is that gum disease makes diabetes worse, and diabetes makes gum disease worse.
What's worse yet is that according to the Harvard School of Public Health, more than 92% of diabetes and pre-diabetes is preventable.
