Autoimmune Diseases and Gum Disease Relationship

Please share any references you have on this topic in the comment section below.  

I know that researchers have found many connections between gum disease and quite a number of other health problems.   While the connections are apparent and most professionals agree on the correlations, many have not been fully explained as of yet. 

I had not heard of autoimmune diseases having a relationship to gum disease until yesterday.   Then I started to realize that many customers have told me that have had an autoimmune disease. 

Yesterday, a customer called me to tell me that he had read about this connection.

As I mentioned before, I have heard of many other connections to gum disease.

  1. I have autoimmune hepatitis, was diagnosed 2 years ago. About a year before diagnosis I started to suffer from gum disease. My liver was so inflamed at the stage of diagnosis that I have no doubt that it was already affected when I started to have problems with my gums. Seeing as the liver is responsible for over 900 processes, cleaning our blood included, it makes sense that the two are connected and my dentist also agrees as gums that don't have healthy blood circulation become affected.

    1. I am sorry to hear about your hepatitis. You bring a very good point. The liver is the body's cleanser. That is also good information about the gums needing a clean blood supply. Again, sorry to hear about your illness. Thank you for sharing your story and this information.
