Diabetes is a very difficult condition to deal with and you have to adapt your life in the city of Leeds to cope with the condition. It weakens your immune system and you are very, very vulnerable to all manner of things going wrong. From a dentistry point of view, it can also cause the saliva levels in your mouth to dry-up and this is bad news for your mouth, because a dry mouth enables bacteria to breed and one of the results of this can be gum disease if you are not careful. Once this takes hold, it can poison your blood and compound the condition and infect most of the organs in the body- weakening you even further; but the links between these two conditions works the other way around as well. Gum disease attacks the immune system, and this can lower the sugar levels in your bloodstream and leave you open to the diabetes erupting in your body. Learn all you can about both conditions and then attack them the best you can should you suffer from either; what you don’t want is both so get as much advice you can at treating them.
