Study: Diabetes doubles chances of tooth loss
A shocking new study suggests that males with type 2 diabetes are twice more likely to suffer from tooth loss than those without the illness. The 20-year study was presented at the International Association of Dental Research conference held in Barcelona. It followed more than 38,000 males from 1986 to 2006 to examine connections between diabetes and tooth loss or gum disease. The study was carried out in Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.
