February is American Heart Month!
Did you know that there is a relationship between heart disease and hearing loss!?
Heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease (CVD), occurs when blood vessels become narrowed or blocked. The relationship between heart disease and hearing loss has been studied over the years. While there is not a direct link between heart disease and hearing loss, there is a large body of evidence suggesting a relationship between the two!
We care about your entire health! If you or a member of your family is experiencing heart disease, consider scheduling a baseline hearing test. We’re just a phone call away – 727-323-2471.
