How are diabetes and periodontal disease related?

Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease characterized by not having control of the blood sugar level. The human body loses this control due to the absence or decrease of the hormone called insulin, whose function is to control sugar levels in the body.

People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing gum disease. High blood sugar levels can damage various organs and the same to the gum.
