Second, hyperglycemia increases the It is characterized by hyperglycemia (i.e., elevation formation of advanced glycation end-products of blood glucose concentration) caused by the (AGEs); the overexposure of proteins (such as defective secretion of insulin (type I), or impaired collagen) or lipids to aldose sugars induces non- insulin action due to tissue resistance (type II). While enzymatic glycation and oxidation.6 These there is no known cure for diabetes, appropriate glycosylated products can create complex molecular measures can be taken to control blood glucose levels arrangements, reducing collagen solubility and and prevent both acute and chronic complications.

Bacteria present in periodontal pockets initiate an oral inflammatory response that can lead oral cavity. Changes to collagen metabolism result in to the deterioration of the supporting periodontal accelerated degradation of both non-mineralized tissues. When the host response is comprised of an connective tissue and mineralized bone.6 Research excess of pro-inflammatory mediators known as has demonstrated the presence of elevated levels of cytokines, prostanoids, and enzymes, the destruction pro-inflammatory mediators in the gingival crevicular of periodontal tissues occurs. This results in increased fluid of periodontal pockets of poorly controlled pocket depths, loss of clinical attachment, and diabetics, compared to non-diabetics or well- radiographic evidence of bone loss.7 In patients with controlled diabetics, resulting in significant poorly controlled diabetes, periodontal destruction periodontal destruction with an equivalent bacterial challenge.3,6,8 For clinicians and diabetic patients, this means that the oral hygiene of the diabetic must be Hyperglycemia and Oral Health
