Does anyone else have a problem with their teeth due to being diabetic?

I was diagnosed in 2001. I have always visited my dentist regularly and was told shortly after diagnosis I have severe gum disease, and it's made worse by having diabetes. Since then I have used the best teeth cleaning products. Corsodyl toothpaste and Mouthwash. Floss, between teeth brushes, everything to keep my teeth and more important, my gums clean, yet the problem persists.....

Has anyone else had this problem? what did or do you do about it? Does what you do work?
