Hearing Aids Tailored To Your Life!

Over 10,000 lives transformed
since 1996 in Silicon Valley

With the holiday gatherings right around corner, most diabetics carefully watch their serving sizes. But did you know there is a link between diabetes and the social side of your life? Based on a recent study from the National Institutes of Health, hearing impairment was found to be twice as common among people with diabetes.

For reasons still unknown, it appears that high blood-glucose levels are associated with damage to the tiny blood vessels in your inner ear.

Hearing Loss By The Numbers

A study of over 11,000 adults showed that diabetes and hearing loss are linked as early as age 30. And the link between diabetes and hearing loss was actually greater in individuals 60 or younger. According to the results, those under the age of 60 were over 2.5 times more likely to have some level of hearing loss.

Most diabetics fall under the category of type 2, which results from a defect in the way the body produces or uses insulin. Type 2 diabetes generally occurs in people over 40, and more commonly if you are born with the gene for it or are overweight and living a couch-potato life. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and a startling 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes. That’s a rate of hearing loss 30 percent higher than those with normal blood-glucose levels.

An Audiologist Can Help

With all of the holiday cheer about to happen, if you or a loved one is diabetic and haven’t discussed hearing loss we urge you to contact us right away. Hearing loss caused by damage to the inner ear is irreversible. Checkups with an audiologist can help prevent the adverse problems of progressive hearing loss, including: struggle with communicating at work, trouble hearing in crowded settings, or difficulties communicating socially.

If you or a loved one has diabetes, there are more reasons than ever to watch your hearing health and we can help.

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.
