Periodontal examination can determine risk of diabetes
from The Medical News
A recent study published in the Journal of Dental Research at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and backed by The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, among others, found that a pre-diabetes determination can be made by simply going to the dentist. The study has huge implications for those Americans who are developing Type 2 diabetes at alarming rates. Unlike Type 1, Type 2 Diabetes is acquired, mostly from poor diet and therefore, early detection can stop the disease from progressing. According to the American Diabetes Association, a whopping 25.8 million Americans now have diabetes.
