Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting over 600,000 people a year. Cardiovascular diseases resulting from poor nutrition, lack of exercise, stress, and smoking have been closely linked to hearing loss in older adults. This is because poor cardiovascular health decreases blood flow, and the structures in the ear need strong blood flow to continue working properly.
Some researchers have even called the ear a “window to the heart” because they’ve found that audiogram patterns (the results of a hearing test) correlate strongly with heart disease. This means that doctors might be able to use these patterns as screening criteria to assess whether someone is at risk for cardiovascular events like heart attacks.BACK NEXT
