Hearing loss is not just associated with getting older. It can also be health related.

A recent study by the American Diabetes Foundation found that hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes. The study found, “It is still not clear how diabetes is related to hearing loss. It is possible that high blood glucose levels cause damage to small blood vessels in the inner ear.” If your loved one is diabetic or even pre-diabetic, suggest to them they get their hearing checked.

Around 2.5 million adults aged 18 and above in Malaysia have diabetes ranking Malaysia with the highest rate of diabetes in Asia. In Singapore there are over 400,000 people living with the disease, the Singapore Ministry of Health believes that about a third of diabetics don’t know they are ill.
