GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (ABC 4)- Research shows a correlation between diabetes and hearing loss. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), having diabetes puts an individual at risk for hearing loss due to elevated blood sugar levels. Managing blood sugar is crucial because increased levels can damage small blood vessels and nerves in inner ear structures.
