Question: I was recently treated for a heart attack and I think my hearing has decreased. Is that possible?
Yes, hearing loss happens 54% more often in people with heart disease than in the general population. This is because the inner ear is extremely sensitive to blood flow. Inadequate blood flow and trauma to the blood vessels of the inner ear can contribute to hearing loss. There is a definite link between cardiovascular health and hearing health. It’s time for a hearing test and possibly, hearing aids.
The majority of people with hearing loss benefit from hearing aids, which have advanced dramatically in recent years. Hearing aids are designed to help people keep up with active lifestyles and improve their quality of life. Call us, we can help!
