Hearing loss has been linked to numerous diseases and conditions. As a physician, knowing which diseases or conditions affect hearing can help you determine who should be monitored closely with regular hearing tests.
Hearing loss can also point to possible health conditions. Therefore, if a patient has been diagnosed with a hearing loss it may be prudent to run some tests to assess for certain diseases that can affect hearing loss.
Some common hearing loss comorbidities include:
- Cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
- Chronic kidney disease
- Clinical depression
- Falls, balance and vertigo
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Thyroid Disease
