It's never too late to start preventive care against diabetes.
Colgate Total and the American Diabetes Association launched a new campaign called “Watch Your Mouth!” to help raise awareness surrounding the often-overlooked link between oral health and diabetes. According to the CDC OralHealthAndDiabetes.com, people with diabetes are two times more likely to develop gum disease. But there are a few simple steps we can take to help prevent early gum disease: o Make sure you visit your dentist. While your doctor and certified diabetes educator play an important role in helping with your diabetes, so does your dentist.o Follow healthy dental habits at home. Research shows that brushing twice a day with Colgate Total® toothpaste can help improve gum health in as little as four weeks.
Diabetes has affected a large number of people all over the world. Alone in America, the count is in millions. Reasons are many starting from busy life style to eating habits but results are
dangerous. Once affected from Diabetes, it takes all sweetness away hence; we need to be very cautious about our life style and eating habits. Otherwise, like those millions suffering from diabetes, we may need to say bye bye to sweetness and a lot other things from life.
Moreover, we have to be on daily doses to control diabetes because once it reaches to advance level, insulin will be a part of daily diet. Influences all over body parts including kidney, heart, nerves, eyes, muscles, etc. Even it affects oral health as well. Here on diabetes awareness month, we have to promise us that we will beat diabetes and will not let it affect our body and oral health. Tooth decay, periodontal diseases, infection, delayed healing, bleeding of gum and delayed healing, and so on. Whenever you get a sign of tooth problem, consult a specialist and share diabetes history with him/her too so that he can suggest the best treatment. Do not hide anything about diabetes. Tell him/her if you are diagnosed with diabetes, current sugar level, etc
I remember that when one of my friends mother has been diagnosed with diabetes, and now medicines have become a part of her daily diet. Whenever she has an injury, it takes time to heal. She cannot enjoy life at the fullest, as she cannot eat sweets anymore, she cannot eat chocolates anymore that she loved a lot, she cannot add sugar in her tea/coffee, and a lot more she has scarified. Please do not make your life a hell. Take preventive care against diabetes, stay healthy, and have fun in the life.
