Hearing Loss Linked to Chronic Diseases

Hearing loss may be affecting more than just your hearing. Even if you think you’ve got a handle on your hearing loss, there’s a good chance that it could be linked to other serious medical conditions. A 2010 study conducted by the Better Hearing Institute, showed that both physical and psychological factors create a strong correlation between those suffering from hearing loss and a tendency to have or develop chronic diseases.

These diseases include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Depression
  • Dementia

It’s time to stop ignoring the problem before it gets worse. Schedule an appointment today to see if you qualify for hearing loss treatment.
