Hearing Loss & Diabetes

Posted by Angela Graves, AuD on January 14, 2019 at 4:05 PM



So, my husband was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I learned that a lot of the things I thought I knew, I really didn’t. But, the one thing I did know was something our counselor did NOT know.


Compared to the 17% of diabetics who suffer vision issues, roughly 65% of all diabetics suffer with hearing loss! Why doesn’t that statistic get any comment? In all the recommendations for diet and exercise and lifestyle change my husband received, there was no recommendation for a baseline hearing test. No mention of anoxia (loss of oxygen) in the inner ear. No mention of permanent hearing loss. No recommendation for annual testing to monitor the progressive nature of the beast. Nothing.


Naturally, I tested his hearing. And, guess what I found…in the five years since his previous test, there has been a drop in hearing sensitivity in both ears. His hearing is still “within normal limits”, but he is only 46 years old, he has no medical history with the ears, and he has no history of noise exposure. His hearing should be within normal limits, and yet it is not as good as it was five years ago. He is already scheduled for his annual test for next year!


Please ask all your diabetic friends and family if they have noticed a change in their hearing, then invite them to get an annual hearing test. Because, really, how can they be compliant to the physician’s recommendations if they can’t hear them?


As for you, dear reader, has your primary care physician (or any other care provider) recommended/ordered a hearing exam for you?

Diabetes is reversible. I am talking about the most common form of diabetes which is type 2.

I have reversed it in so many cases myself and there are documented cases of thousands of people who have reversed diabetes with the help of experts.

Glucose is the sugar which is used by every cell of the body to produce energy. This is carried by a hormone insulin to most of the cells. When sugar levels are high, the cells do not allow sugar inside and that is when we say Insulin has become ineffective. i.e. Insulin sensitivity has come down and the condition is known as Diabetes when excess sugar starts to circulate in the blood.

Even the fat cells no longer store sugar. So any activity which burns energy will make your insulin sensitive and push glucose inside the cells reducing your sugar levels in the blood. When the intake of sugar is reduced, a similar result is observed.

It takes a long time for the body to reverse diabetes and the body needs a lot of nutrients, as in a diabetic State the body is depleted of many nutrients.

Diabetics are prone to infection and other chronic diseases like kidney failure, heart disease etc.

Therefore it is important that you reverse the diabetes with a controlled and customized diet and not by yo yo dieting like reducing food intake. I definitely think that every parent needs to check out the site www.DiabetesReversalTactics.info if you?re serious about reversing your type 2 diabetes.

Good luck!
