Smoking and Hearing Loss
Smoking and Hearing Loss
March 15, 2017

Could your hearing loss be caused by your cigarettes? A recent study shows that to be the case.

A new study from Manchester University concluded that smokers have a higher chance of having hearing loss than non-smokers. Even passive exposure to tobacco smoke is bad for your ears. Research found that those who were exposed to tobacco smoke for more than 10 hours per week were found to also have a 40% higher risk of hearing loss than people with no exposure to tobacco smoke.

Today’s hearing aids help people with hearing loss better hear sounds and people from all directions, and they filter out noise. Many sit discreetly and comfortably inside the ear canal and out of sight; and many are wireless, so they can interface easily with other high-tech devices like smartphones, home entertainment systems, conference-room speakerphones, and hearing loops. Some are even waterproof; and others are rechargeable.

Diabetes & Hearing Loss Linked
Diabetes & Hearing Loss Linked
June 17, 2015

Hearing depends on small blood vessels and nerves in the inner ear. Studies have shown that people with diabetes have a higher rate of hearing loss than people without diabetes. Although the relationship between diabetes and hearing loss is still being investigated, researchers theorize that, over time, high blood glucose levels can damage the blood vessels and nerves of the inner ear, diminishing the ability to hear.
