01/5Here are some signs of diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people across the globe every year. The spike in the blood sugar level due to glucose builds up in your bloodstream leads to diverse symptoms. Some signs of diabetes are evident, and most people know about them, while few often go unnoticed. The onset of diabetes is marked by excessive hunger, frequent urination, fatigue and irritability. Besides these prominent indications, there are three warning signs also found in your mouth. A person’s oral health reveals a lot about overall health including their blood sugar levels. Here are the three signs of diabetes to look for
Dry mouth is one of the common and earliest symptoms of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. In this, the individual might feel parched all the time. He/she may feel the need to guzzle gallons of water in one go. Why the spike in blood sugar level makes a diabetic patient feel parched is still unknown, but as per theories, it can be due to some medications to control diabetes. The symptoms of dry mouth include:
Rough or dry tongue
Lack of moisture in the mouth
Cracked and chapped lips
Sores in the mouth
Difficulty with swallowing, talking or chewing
A dry mouth also affects the production of saliva around the teeth and under the gums. As a result, the amount of sugar in the body increases, leading to germs and plaque formation. It irritates your gums and causes gum diseases, tooth decay, and tooth loss. Gum disease is more common in the case of uncontrolled diabetes. Having gum disease is an indication that the blood sugar level is worse. The symptoms of gum diseases include:
Red, swollen, sore, or bleeding gums
Sensitive or loose teeth
Changes in the way your bite feels
Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
Gum disease may also lead to tooth loss in patients dealing with diabetes. Plaque formation around the gums loosens the grip around the teeth, which may lead to tooth loss. Research shows diabetics lose twice as many teeth on average as compared to those who suffer from other diseases. The risk is even higher in old age and among those who do not take care of their oral health. The common symptoms of tooth loss include:
Swollen or sore gums
05/5What should you do?
To prevent oral health-related complications, a diabetic patient must keep their blood sugar level in check and schedule regular appointments with dentists. In most cases of diabetes, people focus on foot and eye care as these are the main topic of concern. Dental care is often sidelined which intensifies the oral related issues.
