One of the symptoms of impending type II diabetes can be a disease of the gums. This was told by dentists.
Over 6 million people in Russia suffer from diabetes. It is a lifelong disorder, leading to persistent increase in blood sugar levels. Most of the victims of diabetes of the first type are born with this disorder and the second type can develop at any time of life. In the second type of diabetes the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body cells no longer react to it. The hormone insulin is produced by the pancreas and is responsible for controlling the amount of glucose in the blood. Common symptoms of type II diabetes are racing of appetite, excessive thirst, mood swings, numbness of the feet or pain. But there are other ways to detect diabetes at an early stage. In particular, it is possible to guess at the disease of the gums.
The development of gum disease can be an early symptom of elevated blood sugar levels. Diabetics are often faced with diseases of the periodontium. Due to jumps of sugar damage the blood vessels that bring oxygen and nutrients to the gums. Uncontrolled blood sugar level causes to increase the amount of glucose in the saliva that creates a breeding ground for bacteria. Both of these factors increase the risk of gum disease.
Magicforum recalls that gum disease is one of the most popular in the world. They affect not only the gums but also the bone supporting the teeth. These diseases often lead to tooth loss. Classic signs of gum disease are bleeding when brushing your teeth and eating, swelling and redness of the gums, steady bad breath and reducing the level of the gums against the teeth. The good news is that these diseases are treatable, especially in the early stages.
