NOVEMBER: DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH

According to the CDC, hearing loss happens for many reasons. You probably know that if can happen as you age or if you spend too much time around loud noises. You may not know that having diabetes puts you at risk for hearing loss!

Diabetes can lead to nerve damage that affects many parts of the body, including in your ears. Over time, high blood sugar levels can damage small blood vessels and nerves in the 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.

Because of this link, hearing loss is twice as common in people in people who have diabetes as it is in people of the same age who don’t.

And, for every 10dB of hearing loss, a person is 3-times more likely to fall. Balance and hearing are in the same boney structure in the ear-so hearing loss can lead to a balance issue. It is recommended that you get your hearing tested every year if you have diabetes.

GET READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
  • Rest before going to large gatherings
  • Make sure your hearing aids are cleaned
  • Put in new wax filters
  • Make sure your aids are fully charged or have fresh batteries
  • Plan for seating arrangements; if you can, sit where you can face most people and try to reduce as much unnecessary background noise as possible
  • For large gatherings that are very challenging to hear in, you may need 1-on-1 time to have conversations
  • Anticipate topics to try and better be an active part
