Treating gum disease lowers blood glucose

From reports out of University of Virginia Health Department in 2004 and probably before, to David Mendosa reporting in July 2008 and July 2009, to the latest study at the University of Edinburgh, U.K., and supported by colleagues at the Peninsula Dental School, the University of Ottawa and UCL Eastman Dental Institute written in May 2010, we are all reading about how dental health has a direct benefit to diabetes health.

So if you are having any of the problems described in the U of Virginia article and have diabetes, you should see your dentist. You should have regular checkups regardless and your diabetes will thank you.
