Reason 8: You’ve got high blood pressure.
People suffering from high blood pressure could also suffer from hearing loss as a result of their medical condition. Research has found a significant association between hypertension and hearing loss. Hearing loss in the population under study suggests that hypertension is an accelerating factor of degeneration of the hearing apparatus due to aging.
Another researcher further pointed out the urgent need for early intervention in patients who are possibly in danger of losing their hearing. “Hypertension is a trigger for several kinds of diseases but hearing loss affects quality of life and, therefore, it’s important to rectify it as early as possible” said Jagade.
When you check your heart, check your ears; they are more related than we think!
