Diabetes and oral health
from Daily Excelsior
Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose gets into your cells to give them energy. With type one diabetes, your body does not make insulin. DM is classified according to its etiology as type one (T1D), type two (T2D), gestational diabetes (GDM) .T1D results from the destruction of beta-cells within the islets of Langerhans of the pancreas, which results in a complete insulin deficiency; it can be immune-mediated or have an idiopathic etiology.
