Abstract


Background: India is at a high risk of developing Periodontitis and diabetes mellitus. C- reactive protein increased in
inflammation and diabetes is an inflammatory atherothrombotic condition whereas in Periodontitis there is inflammation
of alveolar tissues. In present study we determined significance of C - reactive protein in diabetes and periodontal patients.
Materials and Methods: 100 patients who were found to have Periodontitis with and without DM (each 50) at admission or OPD were enrolled.
Their risk factors were compared with 50 age and sex matched who did not have Periodontitis.
Results: In present study we studied association of c-reactive protein in periodontitis and diabetes patients in different age groups The level of
CRP was found 30% positive and 70 % negative in non diabetes mellitus with non Periodontitis, 45% positive and 55% negative in non diabetes
mellitus with periodontitis and 57 % positive and 43 % negative in diabetes mellitus and periodontitis.p value (< 0.05)
Conclusion: Chances of periodontitis in poor glycemic control is high whereas diabetes progression leads to periodontitis. CRP is important in
diagnosis, prognosis and medical management of both diseases.
