Osteoporosis diagnosis contributes to hearing loss risk

16 abril 2015

People who have osteoporosis face a 1.76-fold higher risk of developing sudden deafness than those who do not have the bone disease, according to a new study. Osteoporosis is a progressive condition in which bones become structurally weak and are more likely to fracture or break. More than 40 million people nationwide already have osteoporosis or are at risk of developing the condition due to low bone mass. Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL), also called sudden deafness, is an unexplained, rapid loss of hearing that typically happens in one ear. About half of the people who develop SSHL will spontaneously regain their hearing.
