A newsletter for people who have diabetes focuses on the links between diabetes and gum disease that can lead to catastrophic health events such as heart attack and stroke. The two-way connection between diabetes and periodontitis includes systemic inflammation which can worsen both conditions and contribute to or cause an entire cascade of serious health problems. Significantly, proper dental care can lead to better metabolic management for people who have diabetes. The first issue of the newsletter focuses on a telltale diabetes symptom and how to address it.

PR9.NET May 31, 2008 - Richmond, VA - A new free newsletter for people who have diabetes addresses their unique oral health care needs through information from recent scientific research that documents the connections between diabetes and gum disease. The newsletter is published by Dentistry For Diabetics, a national organization of dentists dedicated to providing oral health care that is tailored to prevent, treat, or even reverse the potentially catastrophic health effects of co-occurring diabetes and periodontitis. The free newsletter is available online at

"This newsletter contains straightforward information that people who have diabetes can use to help better manage their metabolic status and enjoy a preferred quality of life," said Dr. Charles Martin, Dentistry For Diabetics founder. "Unfortunately, the complex cascade of interactions between diabetes and gum disease are not well known yet throughout the diabetes community, and that's what this newsletter is all about."

The first issue of Diabetes, Dentistry & You deals with dry mouth, a frequent symptom experienced by people who have diabetes. In diabetes, the condition is a product of degenerative changes in the salivary glands. Known clinically as xerostomia, it causes problems with swallowing and speaking, produces hoarseness, and triggers bad breath. Because the salivary glands do not produce enough saliva to help wash away pathogenic oral bacteria, xerostomia contributes to dental health problems such as cavities and gum disease.

"In addition to describing how the condition occurs in people who have diabetes and how it adversely affects oral health, we also provide some helpful measures that may relieve the discomfort of xerostomia," said Martin. "The first oral complication of diabetes is periodontal disease, which stems from chronic inflammation caused by bacteria and microbes. This inflammation can spread system-wide, possibly leading to life-threatening health events such as heart attack and stroke. This is literally a case of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure."
