Abstract

Saliva is the most important tool to monitor various biochemical parameters including protein and glucose. Hence, it can be used as a tool to find if a patient is diabetic or nondiabetic. This review presents information about the salivary glucose and protein levels in diabetic and non-diabetic subjects. It can be concluded that salivary protein and glucose levels are raised in diabetic patients than in non-diabetic patients.

Keywords: Saliva, Salivary protein, Salivary glucose, Diabetes mellitus.
