NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme has released a campaign for Diabetes Prevention week 1-7 April 2019, please see the link below for more information:

 

https://campaignresources.phe.gov.uk/resources/campaigns/72/resources/

 

We are encouraging dental practices to get involved in this campaign. You will be aware of the link between periodontal health and diabetes but your teams and patients may be less aware. This is a great opportunity to remind teams and patients that:

 

  • People with diabetes can improve their glycaemic      control by ensuring they have healthy gums. This can significantly reduce      their HbA1C levels.
  • People with poor periodontal health may be at higher      risk of diabetes, so they should be encouraged to consider their      risk www.riskscore.diabetes.co.uk

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Janet Clarke, DCDO,

Office of CDO, England
