Dry mouth

When you have a dry mouth, it’s not always the result of dehydration. In fact, diabetes and dry mouth are also linked, because diabetes is at fault for causing a reduction in saliva. Between 40% and 80% of diabetics are reportedly suffering from dry mouth symptoms, which can be the result of diabetes.

Plus, reduced saliva can eventually lead to tooth decay and an oral condition known as gingivitis. This annoying symptom can also disrupt your sleep, and cause changes in your oral hydration and in your sense of smell and taste. Also, diabetics might suffer from dry mouth as a direct result of different medications.

  1. Interesting article. I have been diagnosed with diabetes for a number of years, and has experienced all the symptoms except slow healing. Glad to miss out on at least one of them.
