You may not know this, but your heart and your ears have a closer relationship than you might think!
There are a number of studies that have shown a direct link between cardiovascular disease and hearing loss. Your ears as well as the auditory part of your brain that allows you to comprehend what you hear are heavily dependent on a healthy oxygen-rich blood flow for them to stay healthy and function appropriately. If there is a lack of blood flow to these areas, it can lead to permanent hearing loss and difficulty understanding sounds.
Because of the relationship between hearing loss and heart disease, a healthy lifestyle is beneficial for both! Eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, not smoking, and managing stress are all ways that you can help to keep your heart healthy, and in turn your hearing better too!
Free At Home Hearing Screenings
If you or someone you know is hesitant to make an appointment to have their hearing checked, Resound
offers a free and easy way to perform an at home self-administered hearing “screening.” If the screening shows a hearing deficit, it is then highly recommended an appointment be scheduled with an audiologist for a diagnostic test to determine the cause of the hearing loss. Sometimes it is something as simple as ear wax that needs removed! However, other times it can be a medical issue that needs treated.
