A woman from Milton Keynes has developed a mysterious condition that means parts of her teeth fall out when she sneezes. Linzi Grant, 18, suffers with toothache and painful gum abscesses and has even been hospitalised due to repeated dental infections.

Doctors now believe that Miss Grant’s type 1 diabetes may be causing the tooth weakness but Linzi is not convinced this is the reason for her dental problems and her healthcare providers don’t believe it is the case either.

She spoke to MailOnline about her ongoing issues and explained how she had been bullied and finds the situation ‘humiliating’. Dr Ben Atkins, trustee of the Oral Health Foundation suggested that Miss Grant’s diet was to blame for her dental decay and broken teeth; despite the fact she says she does not eat any sugar. Dr Atkins says that perhaps she does not realise the amount of sugar she is actually consuming and suggests that she has the badly decayed teeth removed to get rid of her toothache.

A spokesman for NHS England said that many people who have diabetes are susceptible to oral infections and this could be what is happening in Miss Grant’s case. He added that they are ‘working hard to find the best way to help the patient’. Miss Grant is now raising money to try and go private in order to find out what is wrong with her teeth.
