Diabetes and Hearing Loss

Free Hearing Tests! More than 2x as many diabetics (21%) have hearing loss compared to non-diabetics (9%). Hearing loss is also tied to a 3x higher incidence of injury-causing fall risks.

Don't Neglect Hearing Loss

Untreated hearing loss can profoundly affect a patient's overall health and quality of life. Studies show that it has a strong link to many prevalent health conditions, such as:

  • Low-frequency hearing loss is an early marker for higher-risk cardiovascular disease and stroke

  • Cognitive brain function, especially in the elderly, is associated with dementia

  • 3x higher fall risks

  • 2x higher in diabetics

  • Depression, anxiety, paranoia, hypertension, and others

Early detection provides a better quality of life. Encourage patients to get all their preventive services.
