RE: [IPk] teeth



Hello everyone....speaking of teeth...I have heard that diabetics have more
'issues' with their teeth than non-diabetics..i.e. peridontal disease, loss
of teeth, etc.  Do any of you know about this or have any information?  My
dentist is lacking in this area.  Thanks!

Hi!!

I had all 4 wisdom teeth out yesterday and everything went okÖ.. ish. I was
allowed to keep my pump on and wasnít put on a sliding scale. Although I did
have to have a glucose drip. I went into hospital with a BG of 15. I took 3
units which should have brought me down to 6, but no, because it was so hot
I went MEGA hypo and after about 10 minutes of constantly calling the nurse
she finally arrived with a doctor and a big bag of glucose which they shoved
into the back of my handÖ. Tell you what though, it starts working within
about 3 seconds!!!

I could have fiddled with my basel rate but I didnít want the " end of
temporary basel rate" alarm going off when I was knocked out!

Iím now generally eating mush and popping the pain killer and antibiotic
pills. None of it went as badly as I expected which was such a relief!
Although I do look like a hamster with its pouches full!!

Eleanor
