Sleep Apnea is Connected to Hearing Difficulties

It’s estimated that 22 million Americans experience sleep apnea. This is a disorder in which a person’s breathing pauses or becomes shallow/infrequent at least five times an hour during sleep.

Sleep apnea has been linked with the development of hearing difficulties, possibly because it reduces blood supply to the important parts of the inner ear. In a recent study, participants with sleep apnea were found to have a 90% higher risk of hearing loss.
