Diabetes causes blood sugar levels to fluctuate too high or too low.
Over time, these changes damage the nerves throughout your body, including in your ears! A person with diabetes is twice as likely to have hearing loss as someone the same age who does not have diabetes.
Pre-diabetes increases the likelihood of hearing loss as well! If you have diabetes, monitoring your hearing is as important as monitoring your eyes or your feet for diabetic complications.
