Hearing Loss and Related Health Conditions

Did you know that your hearing is connected to your overall health and well-being?

In fact, hearing loss is closely related to other health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Those with sleep apnea are also more likely to have hearing loss partly because the blood flow to the ear is restricted.

Your hearing can also affect your balance. Those with hearing loss are more prone to slips and falls that can cause additional health issues.

As the ability to hear declines, so does the stimulation the brain receives. In older Americans, hearing loss has been associated with cognitive decline, brain shrinkage, speech recognition, and even dementia. Isolation is another effect of hearing loss, which can lead to difficulties with depression.

Thankfully, almost all hearing loss is treatable. With hearing aids, some conditions related to hearing loss can be prevented or treated appropriately.
