November Is A Month To Highlight Diabetes

Does this sound familiar to you? Your child is suddenly thirsty all of the time. He begins wetting the bed at night when he hasn’t done that in years. You take him to the doctor, and they perform a blood test to get to the bottom of these irregularities. It’s discovered that he has diabetes.

If you or your child has been diagnosed with diabetes, this scenario is very familiar to you. Chances are that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with diabetes. Millions of Americans are impacted by diabetes and the month of November has been set aside to highlight the need for a cure for this disease.

November is National Diabetes Month

If you or a loved one is living with diabetes it can be challenging to manage each day. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases the theme for this year’s campaign is that you are the most important member of your diabetes care team, and you don’t have to manage your diabetes alone. Seek support from health professionals, your family, friends, and community to help you manage your diabetes.”

Paul Jang Dentistry would like to be a part of your care team. For patients with diabetes, we offer optimal care for your dental health. If you suffer from diabetes, you need to take extra care of your dental health. Diabetes patients have a higher chance of developing gum disease. The gum disease can lead to tooth loss and infections. The infection has the potential to raise your blood sugar and make your diabetes more difficult to manage. By maintaining your regular at home dental care and your regular dental office visits, you can lower your risk of gum disease dramatically.

Call and schedule your regular check up and cleaning with Dr. Paul Jang today.
