Research data reveals a link between hearing health and cardiovascular health. In fact, the two often correspond, a healthy cardiovascular system appears to have a positive effect on hearing. Study findings suggest that a healthy heart and cardiovascular system may be important for healthy hearing.
According to the Better Hearing Institute (2012), studies increasingly show that hearing loss is affiliated with a number of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease. Additionally, studies show that a healthy cardiovascular system (your heart, arteries, and veins) has a positive effect on hearing loss.
The Hearing Journal (2014) estimates that 67% of people with diabetes (ages 40-69) have high-frequency hearing loss.
Hearing loss, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure often go hand in hand, and recognizing the connection could save your hearing – or your life. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, hearing screenings are a must.
