Link made between mouth health, diabetes
from Public News Service
Connections are becoming clearer between good oral health and treating high blood sugar. November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and one way folks can better manage the disease is by seeing a dentist. Dr. Lisa Bozzetti is the dental director at the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center in Hillsboro, Oregon, originally founded to serve Oregon's migrant farm worker population in Yamhill and Washington counties. She says dental health and diabetes don't have a causal relationship, but they're on a two-way street – looking after one improves the other.
