Burning mouth in a diabetic
Can burning mouth have anything to do with diabetes.
There have been reports of burning mouth occurring more frequently in diabetic patients; however, the evidence is weak and not well-controlled. At this point, there is no clear understanding of what causes this annoying condition or how to best treat patients who develop it.Hope this helps.
