Periodontitis in the mouth could signal ‘uncontrolled’ diabetes and bowel diseases


“Moreover, the induction of periodontitis seems to result in gut dysbiosis and altered gut epithelial cell barrier function, which might contribute to the pathogenesis of IBD.”

Inflammatory bowel disease mainly refers to two conditions: ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, and is not the same as irritable bowel syndrome.

Other common symptoms include:

  • Pain, cramps or swelling in the tummy
  • Recurring or bloody diarrhoea
  • Weight loss
  • Extreme tiredness.

If you think you have inflammatory bowel disease you should see your GP.
