1. Diabetes & Hearing Loss Linked

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.

"Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying my first year of having hearing aids. I now realize how hard I was working at simply understanding what people were saying. I feel more relaxed and more confident now that I'm not straining to read every possible non-verbal and facial expression in trying to puzzle it all out. In some ways, I sort of feel like I have more time now."
