Researchers reveal how diabetes weakens gum defense

Researchers from Pusan National University have discovered how diabetes weakens gum defense, linking periodontitis and diabetes mellitus through altered immune cell function and the RESISTIN pathway. Their study, using single-cell RNA analysis, revealed immune changes at the cellular level, suggesting periodontitis could be a precursor to diabetes. This research could lead to targeted interventions for patients with periodontitis to reduce their risk of developing diabetes. For more details, you can read the full article on Medical Xpress​​.
