Diabetes & Oral Health

Ireland will have 233,000 people over 20 years of age with diabetes by 2020 corresponding to a prevalence rate in the population of over 7.5%.
Uncontrolled diabetes where the level of sugar circulating in the blood is higher than normal causes damage throughout the body including the eyes, kidneys, heart, nerves, blood vessels and the mouth.
