There are many diseases that cause hearing loss, not just high blood sugar.With the increase of people with high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia, these diseases have become a major risk factor for presbycusis.
Hypertension can cause systemic vascular disease, affecting the microcirculation of many tissues and organs of the body, including the inner ear microcirculation, resulting in lack of blood oxygen in the inner ear, leading to hearing loss.
Long-term high blood sugar can cause damage to blood vessels and increase the risk of hearing loss.This is because blood sugar can damage the nerves and tissues in the ear and destroy the hearing ability.
Deafness caused by hyperlipidemia mostly occurs in middle-aged and elderly patients, and the onset process is slow.The reason is that hyperlipidemia can lead to inner ear lipid deposition, increased lipid peroxide, inner ear cell damage, vascular atrophy, and ultimately deafness.In addition, due to high blood lipids, blood viscosity increases, platelet aggregation increases, and atherosclerosis is induced, resulting in slow blood flow in the inner ear and insufficient blood supply, leading to hearing loss.
5. In addition to drug treatment, patients with hyperlipidemia should eat less high-fat and high-cholesterol foods, which can prevent atherosclerosis and deafness caused by hyperlipidemia.
