Once again, periodontitis tied to diabetes complications
from Diabetes in Control
Adults with type 2 diabetes and microvascular complications have an increased risk for severe periodontitis compared with those without microvascular complications. Poor glycemic control is also associated with severity and prevalence of periodontitis in adults with type 2 diabetes, according to the researchers. The larger question is what comes first? Does diabetes cause periodontitis or does periodontitis increase our risk of diabetes?
