High Blood Pressure and Hearing Loss

Studies have shown that high blood pressure is associated with a higher risk of hearing loss.

One-third of adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure.  Several studies have shown that hypertension is
associated with the risk of sensorineural hearing loss according to the CDC –  Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention.  Hypertension damages the small blood vessels in the brain, which means neurons, hair cells, and
other cells necessary for auditory processing do not perform optimally.
