Straight teeth talk: Healthy mouth is a gateway to healthy body
from The Victoria Advocate
This is the story of a diabetic man who was able to drastically decrease his insulin intake by having infected teeth removed. In addition to having a history of uncontrolled diabetes, this patient had open heart surgery in 1997 and recently was diagnosed with glaucoma. He and his specialist worked for years to get his blood sugar stabilized without good results. What makes this story special is that just 10 days after having dental surgery the patient had a low sugar attack that required the family to call EMS. Two days later his physician determined his current insulin dosage was now too strong.
