More than 400 million people worldwide have diabetes according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Singapore has its fair share too and the reasons for the high prevalence of diabetes are complex. Asians appear to have a higher genetic predisposition to developing diabetes but hearing loss is a common complaint globally, and both ailments require professional health care solutions. So if you, or your loved ones, are losing your hearing then it's important to consult a good, professional hearing care consultant, like Clariti, as soon as possible.
Blood, sugar and nerves
Underlying health conditions surfaced during the Covid 19 pandemic and often more than one thing can go wrong at the same time in any situation. The association between type 2 diabetes and hearing loss is still a matter for ongoing research by leading scientists and audiologists but diabetes can cause nerve damage in your ears. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage small blood vessels and nerves in your inner ear. Low blood sugar over time can damage how the nerve signals travel from the inner ear to your brain. Both types of nerve damage can lead to hearing loss. A recent study found that hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes as it is in those who don't have diabetes. If you, or your loved ones, are suffering from hearing loss and diabetes, your situation may become complicated.
