American research shows that glycosylated hemoglobin and population factors are significantly related to periodontitis, rather than self-reported diabetes status.
the study was published online on November 27, 2014 in J Periodon.
The researchers analyzed data from the U.S. health and nutrition survey from 2009 to 2012.
periodontitis was evaluated by the method of whole mouth periodontal examination, and the data were classified according to the monitoring case definitions of the Centers for Disease Control and prevention and the American periodontal society.
classified the self-reported diabetes status as “yes” and “no”; Two cases. A 6032 a 6032 blood glucose control using glycosylated hemoglobin data. A 6032 a 6032
The results showed that 7047 adults over 30 years old were included in the study. The average glycosylated hemoglobin level of
patients with and without periodontal disease was 5.9% and 5.6%, respectively. The index of diabetic patients increased to 7.4% and 7.0%.
In the study population, the age of patients with periodontitis was mainly 50-64 years old, accounting for 37.4%; the age of patients without periodontitis was mainly 35-49 years old, accounting for 44.5%. In the
binary analysis, several demographic factors were significantly related to periodontitis – self-reported diabetes status and blood glucose control, etc.
In multiple regression analysis, self-reported diabetic status was no longer significantly related to periodontitis, while the glycosylated hemoglobin level and mean glycosylated hemoglobin level at cut-off points of 8.0%, 8.5% and 9.0% were still significantly related to periodontitis
