Hearing loss is more that twice as common in adults with diabetes compared to those who do not have the disease, according to a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health. Twenty-one percent of the diabetics surveyed had hearing loss, compared to only 9% of no-diabetics. Of the diabetics tested, 68% of them were found to have hearing loss in the higer frequencies. Given these findings, diabetic patients and those at-risk for developing diabetes should have an annual hearing evaluation.

SOME CAUSES OF HEARING LOSS
Hearing loss and dementia are conditions that affect similar populations. Since many individuals do not seek treatment for their hearing loss, it is plausible that many patients seeking treatment for demetia have untreated hearing loss. One way to account for untreated hearing loss would be to conduct routine hearing screening on patients over the age of 55.
