Diabetes and its Link to Hearing Loss

General

“Hearing loss is about twice as common in adults with Type 2 diabetes (which accounts for 95% of all diabetes cases in the U.S.) compared to those who do not have the disease.”

Research shows that there is a relationship between diabetes and hearing loss. Multiple studies have been done to assess the link between the two health problems. It was shown that many of the frequencies necessary for understanding speech were likely to be affected. This is a result of damage to the blood vessels and nerves in the inner ear that occurs with diabetes.

It is always important to talk to your physician about any changes you notice in your health. This includes hearing health!
