Causes of Hearing Loss

There are a number of things that can cause hearing loss. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Excessive noise (construction, loud music, gunfire, etc.)
  • Aging
  • Infections or illnesses
  • Injury to the head or ear
  • Birth defects or genetics
  • A reaction to drugs or cancer treatment (antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiation, etc.)

Diabetes and Hearing Loss

“This is the first time I’ve visited the audiologist and I was extremely pleased.”

For years doctors have known there is a link between diabetes and eye health issues. Research now shows that there may be a link between diabetes and hearing loss as well. If you suffer from diabetes, you should have yearly hearing screenings to catch any hearing loss and treat it at the earliest possible stage.
