Synopsis:<p style="text-align: justify"> The global burden of diabetes mellitus is substantial. Locally, it is estimated that there are 440,000 subjects with diabetes in 2014 and this number is projected to go up to 1 million by 2050. Diabetes is a complex, chronic illness that is associated with several chronic complications including dental complications. It has been unequivocally confirmed as a risk factor for periodontal disease and the level of glycaemic control is of key importance in determining the increased risk. Current evidence also suggests that periodontal disease adversely affects diabetes outcomes. The management of diabetes requires continuous medical care with multi-disciplinary involvement. This lecture will give an update of diabetes management in 3 specific areas, namely therapeutics, glucose monitoring and risk-reduction strategies.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
