Hearing Aids and Type 2 Diabetes

With all the challenges that we face everyday, maintaining good physical and good mental health are positive solutions that can help you and your loved ones to keep going, smoothly. Aging brings about deterioration in our bodies and minds. Taking care of yourself and your loved ones is easier if you follow healthy habits and take gentle, regular exercise. It’s a fact of life that some people are blessed with better health than others, but as we grow older even the healthiest people can face gradual, or sudden, health issues. If you, or your loved ones, are suffering from hearing loss, the best way to restore your quality of life is to wear a suitable hearing aid.

Hearing Loss and Diabetes

When things go wrong they often go wrong in twos, or threes. We all know from the Covid epidemic experience that we lost our freedom to travel, even interstate. Some of us lost some of our income too. The association between type 2 diabetes and hearing loss is controversial. A recent study published in 2019 in Diabetologia found that type 2 diabetes was associated with a modestly higher risk of moderate or worse hearing loss and that longer duration diabetes was associated with a higher risk of moderate or worse hearing loss. If you, or your loved ones, are suffering from either hearing loss or diabetes, your situation may possibly become more challenging if you have both.

Health and Hearing

If you are suffering from type 2 diabetes then you must see a medical doctor, change your diet and exercise routines and take medications as advised. It’s difficult to avoid treating type 2 diabetes by ignoring your symptoms. If you, or your loved ones, are suffering from hearing loss then the same is true. You must visit a good, professional audiologist, and have your hearing checked. Finding, fitting, wearing and maintaining a suitable hearing aid are just as important as solutions for any other physical illness, such as type 2 diabetes. One of the greatest challenges that many people face is that hearing loss is more often ignored or avoided by the people suffering from hearing loss, than people who have other physical illnesses.

Hearing Solutions

There are many reasons why you, and your loved ones, may not seek hearing care solutions from a good, professional audiologist if you are beginning to suffer from hearing loss. Anxiety or denial are just two of the blockages that people encounter when they start to lose their hearing. Wearing a hearing aid will restore your hearing and improve your quality of life just the way that medication can treat type 2 diabetes.
