10 Signs of Being Diabetic

Sign #2: Dry Mouth

The saliva in our mouth has various important functions. It helps us to soften our food prior to us swallowing it, making it an important part of the digestive process. Saliva also helps to keep bacteria at bay, maintaining oral hygiene and preventing infections. Your mouth should be naturally wet, and you may be ill if it is not.

As mentioned above, diabetics will often pass a lot of water from the body to try and flush out the excess sugar. This means less water in the body, and the mouth can become dry as a result. It is not healthy for the mouth to be dry, and you should speak with a medical professional if you have this symptom.
