Diabetes and hearing loss are two of the most common chronic conditions affecting adults in the United States. Recent studies suggest the two might actually be related. The exact cause isn't fully understood, but it's possible elevated blood glucose levels could damage blood vessels in the inner ear, resulting in hearing loss.
More than one in three Americans has diabetes or prediabetes. If you are diabetic or prediabetic and suspect you have hearing loss, visit Strickland Ear Clinic in Meridian, ID. Dr. Strickland can evaluate your hearing to determine whether damage has occurred.
