Brief Summary:
Diabetes is a prevalent and costly disease among users of VA care. Goals of diabetes care include the prevention and/or delay of complications via adequate glycemic control. Improvements in periodontal status may also improve diabetes control.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Mellitus Poor Glycemic Control Peridontal Disease Drug: Doxycycline HCI 10mg po for 2 weeks Procedure: Ultrasonic scaling with 0.12% chlorhexidine gluconate Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Background:

Diabetes is a prevalent and costly disease among users of VA care. Goals of diabetes care include the prevention and/or delay of complications via adequate glycemic control. Improvements in periodontal status may also improve diabetes control.

Objectives:

This project will determine the efficacy of a program of periodontal screening and therapy in improving the level of glycemic control in poorly controlled diabetics.

Methods:

Status:

Subject accrual is complete. Data collection is ongoing.
