10 Diagnosis and Risk Assessment
Diagnosis consistent with uncontrolled diabetes and increased risk for recurrence of oral infection

11 Dietary Questionnaire
Does not carefully match her intake of carbohydrate with her medication. She finally admits to eating cake and cookies.

12 Diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus
Fasting blood glucose Glucose tolerance test Family history Signs and symptoms

13 Dental Management of Diabetes Mellitus
Modification of diabetes medications, if needed Determine dietary and medication regimen prior to treatment Obtain most recent glycohemoglobin determination Have glucose or other readily absorbable form of carbohydrate available Determine need for antibiotics Know the signs and symptoms of profound hypoglycemia (A first-rate medical emergency) Have a glucometer, test strips, and sterile lancets available to test patient’s blood glucose If patient feels nauseous, weak, or has abdominal cramps or flu-like symptoms, as patient to test for ketones.

14 Treatment and Prognosis
Medications Weight control/blood pressure control Diet and exercise Target glycohemoglobin to 6.0% One hour postprandial glucose excursions (particularly for type 1 DM) “Whenever I get the urge to exercise, I lie down and wait for the feeling to pass.” —Mark Twain
