Type 2 diabetes: The dangerous symptom that affects this body part

Type 2 diabetes is a global health epidemic affecting millions of people worldwide. Those living with type 2 diabetes and left untreated or poorly managed could lead to potentially serious problems such as heart disease, nerve damage, foot sores and infections, partial sight or blindness and kidney problems. There is another worrying sign of type 2 diabetes that could potentially lead to total loss of one particular sensory.

Type 2 diabetes causes a person’s blood sugar levels to become too high and this could affect the body in a number of ways.

Recognising the early signs and symptoms of this chronic condition can result in a person getting treatment sooner, which reduces the risk of severe complications.

Early signs include frequent urination, increased thirst, always feeling hungry, feeling very tired, blurry vision and having a tingling in the hands or feet. There is another sensation felt in this body part.

Diabetes.co.uk said on their website: “Diabetes has been linked to the development of hearing problems in various research studies.

Health experts have debated the possible link between diabetes and hearing loss since the 1960s.

In recent years there has been growing evidence to suggest diabetes contributes to hearing loss.”

What the expert said?

Shweta Gupta, ET specialist said: “It is very common to come across patients with diabetes who also have hearing loss.

“Studies have shown a correlation between diabetes and hear loss. In 2008 an NIH study showed that more than 50 percent of diabetics had hearing loss.

“Hearing loss is possible for someone with diabetes and this is due to high blood glucose levels associated with diabetes which causes damage to the small blood vessels in the inner ear.

“This impacts the circulation to the inner ear. Without a good supply, the hair cells that help translate noise do not regenerate causing sensorineural hearing loss.”
