November is American Diabetes Month®, shining a light on the risks of diabetes and pre-diabetes. One of those risks is potential hearing loss. In fact, studies show that hearing loss is twice as common in people with diabetes than in those who don’t have it.
We're starting a new series on comorbidities. Comorbidity means two or more chronic health conditions in the same person that happen at the same time or one right after another. Comorbidities can interact with each other and affect the course and prognosis of each disorder. November is National/American Diabetes Month, so we're kicking off our comorbidity series by exploring the link between hearing loss and diabetes.
