Hearing Loss is More Common in Diabetics

The CDC reports that 30.3 million Americans, 9.4% of the population, have diabetes. However, it’s estimated that 7.2 million diabetic Americans are undiagnosed. This is especially important because hearing loss has been found to be twice as common in people who have diabetes, regardless of the person’s age.

It’s thought that uncontrolled fluctuations in blood sugar levels contribute to hearing loss because they damage blood vessels and nerves throughout the body, including those found in the functional parts of the ear.
