You may recall that in March we reported that NICE opened consultations for periodontal treatment and management for patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
The BSP responded to the consultation, and encouraged members to do the same, to emphasise how important this is for so many people with oral and systemic health issues.
We are delighted that updated guidelines on Type 1 Diabetes in adults, Type 2 Diabetes in adults, and Diabetes (Type 1 & Type 2) in children and young people, have now been updated and published this week. Perio is now officially listed as a complication of Diabetes and the updated guidelines emphasise the importance of periodontal care in Diabetes types 1 & 2 management for adults and children.
