New survey reveals more than one-third of Americans with diabetes unaware of connection between diabetes and oral health

from PR Newswire via The Sacramento Bee

In support of American Diabetes Month, Colgate Total is working with the American Diabetes Association to educate patients about diabetes and gum disease and to empower them to help take charge of their diabetes. A recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Colgate Total® about oral health reveals a lack of awareness about the various health issues associated with diabetes. More than one-third of all respondents are not aware of the link between diabetes and oral health and are less likely to associate oral health issues with diabetes than almost all other health conditions related to diabetes. More than half report one or more symptoms of gum disease — yet 67 percent do not discuss their oral health with their doctor. more
