Q.

teeth/diabetes

Hi

I am a type 2 diabetic. One of my molers broke to pieces yesterday. This is the second in three months. When they brake they seem very brittle and hollow on the inside. The prevouis one I hade to get surgically removed, as the dentist could not pull it, as a piece broke each time. There is always pieces of teeth in my mouth. I have two kids, used my calcium during pregnancy and are now drinking a two a day calsium and magnisiumm supplemant. Could this be a cause of the diabetes?
