Heart Disease and Hearing Loss
February is Heart Disease Awareness Month. Did you know that Heart Disease can be connected to hearing loss? A healthy cardiovascular system can have a positive effect on hearing. However, studies have also shown that inadequate blood flow in the inner ear can contribute to hearing loss. The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) is raising awareness of the link between the two. For more information on hearing loss, visit the BHI website at www.BetterHearing.org or speak with your doctor about having your hearing tested.
