PYORRHEA IS A discharge of pus (short simple answer). Commonly, when we talk about "pyorrhea", we are refering to a dental disease. In it's advanced form, there will be a formation of pus between the bottom (roots) of the tooth and the gums around it. Many times it will cause the loosening of the tooth also. Anyone who thinks that they may have it, or starting to have it, should see their dentist ASAP!

How is Pyorrhea linked to Diabetes Type 1?

Pyorrhea, or periodontal disease, is only related to Type 1 Diabetes, and is not directly linked to it being the cause of Type 1 Diabetes or vice versa. Periodontal disease is only related to Type 1 Diabetes in the sense that a study showed that Type 1 Diabetics showed deeper periodontal pockets and more periodontal attachment loss as opposed to non-diabetics. Those traits are the most common on patients with Pyorrhea, or periodontal disease. These symptoms of periodontal disease seem to appear among Type 1 Diabetics because some Type 1 Diabetics do not have very great metabolic control, which could lead to higher susceptibility and a greater sign of symptoms in Type 1 Diabetics. Type 1 Diabetics do not have these symptoms, but rather have a greater appearance of what a symptom is close to and thus have a higher susceptibility to Pyorrhea.
