      Elkafri, H.; Mashlah, A.; Shaqifa, A. (‎2014)‎
      This study was evaluated the relationship between blood glucose levels and salivary pH and buffering capacity in type II diabetic patients.The sample comprised 210 participants [‎age ranged 40-60 years]‎. Based on fasting blood glucose levels the participants were divided into 3 groups:controls with normal blood glucose levels; diabetic patients with levels > 200 mg/dL; and diabetic patients with levels >/= 200 mg/dL.Salivary pH and buffering capacity were determined in a sample of resting [‎non-stimulated]‎saliva taken from each participant.Salivary ...
