Allegedly obesity may cause hearing loss

现在,耳背已经成了越来越多中年人的健康隐患,所以使用助听器的人群也随直线上升。美国威斯康辛大学研究发现,在48~59岁美国人中,大约21%的人有听力丧失问题,在80岁以上人群中,听力丧失比率更是高达90%。

Obesity is one of the risk factors for the rapid deterioration of hearing in middle-aged and elderly people.Obesity damages people’s hearing from the prime of life. Men with a thick waist before 55 years old have worse hearing than men of the same age.In women, after menopause, due to the lack of estrogen protection, their hearing deteriorates sharply as the waistline becomes thicker.

Experts suggest that a healthy lifestyle can delay hearing loss.For example, weight loss is one of the ways to reduce cardiovascular disease, and cardiovascular disease can reduce blood oxygen in the inner ear or other parts of the ear canal and cause hearing loss.To get rid of the risk of hearing loss, men’s waist circumference should be within 90 cm and women’s waist circumference should be within 80 cm.
