Abstract

Background/Objectives: Diabetes and poor oral-health are serious problems caused of various morbidity. Previous studies on diabetes triggering dementia have reported but the studies related with general oral-health are not clearing.
Methods/Statistical analysis: To clarify on the associated factors of diabetes, the data was analyzed by complex sampling methods with the latest cross-sectional one from 8th (2020) KNHANES (Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey). To find out the associated factors of Diabetes Mellitus and the importance of chewing ability, it was analyzed by multiple-logistic-regressions with SPSS (ver. 21.0).
Findings: 4,183 participants (20≤) aged were selected and multivariable logistic-regression analysis were used. The prevalence of diabetes was 13.1%. As results, age (65≤) and aged (40-64) group compared to (20-39) aged one, and lower education level were the remarkable factors of diabetes. Chewing difficulty presence, female gender, high BMI (body mass index), no spouse, and sedentary time (5≤) factors were the serious one of diabetes in order, with statistically significance. These results show that ageing, bad oral health and life-style factors are important and influencing one in chronic disease such as diabetes mellitus. To my knowledge, this research is the first one to identify the association of diabetes and chewing ability and socio-life-style factors. These results are valuable as useful data to prevent chronic disease such as diabetes mellitus caused of dementia in the ageing society worldwide.
Improvements/Applications: Therefore, to prevent diabetes, public health professionals should urgently prepare various nursing and public health education programs as well as supporting policies in view of primary health care.
