The latest research on hearing loss
Hearing Loss and Depression
After accounting for health conditions and other factors, including trouble seeing, hearing impairment was significantly associated with depression, particularly in women. Article warns that healthcare professionals should be aware of the increased risk for depression among adults with hearing loss.
Diabetes and Hearing Loss
Patients with diabetes are twice as likely to suffer from hearing loss, possibly because the high glucose levels are damaging the blood vessels in the inner ear. Even those with pre-diabetes have a higher risk.
Hearing Loss and Tinnitus
An estimated 50 million Americans experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and about 90 percent of those also have hearing loss. Tinnitus can be a warning sign for sensorineural hearing loss.
Hearing Loss and Dementia
Hearing loss is independently associated with incident all-cause dementia. Whether hearing loss is a marker for early-stage dementia or is actually a modifiable risk factor for dementia needs further study.
Hypertension and Hearing Loss
Studies show that patients suffering from high blood pressure also have an increased risk of developing hearing loss and/or tinnitus. Medications to control blood pressure might help reduce the impact of hearing loss.
