Diagnosing Diabetes

Diagnosing Diabetes

Because the symptoms of diabetes may be subtle, many people with this disease aren't aware they have it. A dentist may be the first to diagnosis diabetes, according to the Academy of General Dentistry. Because of high glucose levels, people with diabetes often have problems with their teeth and gums; increased glucose helps bacteria thrive. Oral symptoms related to diabetes include chronic bad breath, gum disease and sore or loose teeth.
