Diabetes – Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Hearing loss may be an under-recognized complication of Diabetes

According to research studies sensorineural hearing loss is about twice as common in diabetic patients compared to those who do not have diabetes. Over a period of time the high blood sugar levels damage nerves and blood vessels of inner ear that affects the hearing.
