gum disease can be a symptom of other health problems.
1.high glucose levels in the serum (blood)
2.calcium metabolism dysfunction caused by
a. parathyroid dysfunction (hypersecretion of pth hormone that can lead to osteoporosis)
b. insufficient calcium and other minerals in the diet
c. insufficient hydrochloric acid production in the stomach (hypochlorhydria)

as one who has had periodontal disease for years i want to stress the need for finding the cause. please just don't treat the symptoms.
