Hearing Loss & Diabetes in Los Gatos, CA

hearing loss & diabetes in los gatos caEnjoy Comprehensive, Compassionate Care at Los Gatos Audiology

Many people are surprised to see the words hearing loss and diabetes together, but according to a recent study funded by the National Institutes of Health, hearing loss is about twice as common in adults with diabetes than in those who do not have the disease. Although this statistic may be shocking, our experienced audiologist for hearing loss and diabetes in Los Gatos, CA, says there are multiple ways to maintain your healthy hearing, even if you have diabetes.

Are Diabetes & Hearing Loss Related?

Diabetes is a disease that affects multiple areas of your body, including the fragile blood vessels in your ears. When the blood vessels in your ears become damaged, their blood supply becomes diminished, and that results in damaged hearing. 

Diabetes can also cause weakness and numbness in your legs which, when coupled with hearing loss, can put you at risk for developing a balance disorder. If you have diabetes and are experiencing symptoms of hearing loss, contact our office today for a complimentary consultation.

How to Stay On Top of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is a common issue many people face, and your chance of developing hearing loss increases with age. However, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it. Even if you have a disease, like diabetes, that increases your risk, there are multiple ways to preserve your hearing, including:

  • Control Blood Sugar – Maintaining control of your blood sugar helps to minimize damage to blood vessels and could keep your hearing intact longer.
  • No Smoking – Smoking tightens your blood vessels, including the ones in your ears, and increases your risk for hearing loss. When coupled with diabetes, your risk increases substantially. Avoid smoking, especially when you have diabetes, to help maintain your hearing.
  • Manage Loud Noise Exposure – It’s always a good idea to protect your exposure to loud noise, but when you have diabetes, it becomes crucial. Use earplugs or other hearing protection when in a loud environment to help preserve your hearing.

I've been a client of Christine Throm for over 10 years (and 3 moves... you always stay with the best). She is a VERY dedicated professional, she is knowledgeable, and caring. My hearing loss has never been managed more effectively and the she has access to the latest and most advanced technologies. She has personally selected her staff to reflect her own values and high standards. Everyone there is friendly helpful. To top it off, they are now conveniently located adjacent to the "Mission Oaks" campus of Good Sam in a suite of beautiful, "state-of-the-art" offices.She is the GREATEST! Enough said.

Dr. Christine Throm was very knowledgeable and thorough. After one visit I understood what my hearing losses are and what I could expect from hearing aids. I have visited other audiologists with poorer results. I will be returning to Los Gatos Audiology.

I’ve been a patient of Los Gatos Audiology for several years and am on my second set of hearing aids that have been prescribed here. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Christine Throm is the best. She’s always takes time to understand any aspect of my personal hearing issues to provide the best care for me. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
