How To PREVENT Hearing Loss!

Hearing loss is often labeled idiopathic, which means its cause is unknown. Learn about some of the nutrient deficiencies that can affect your hearing.



0:00 Introduction: Types of hearing loss
0:58 What causes hearing loss?
2:11 Viruses associated with hearing loss
2:43 Hearing loss and diabetes
3:32 Vitamin D and hearing loss

Today, we’re going to talk about resolving hearing loss with nutrients. Viruses and nutritional deficiencies are the leading causes of hearing loss.

When you experience an acute infection, there is an initial dramatic decrease in zinc and iron. Both are related to hearing loss. Viruses can also cause selenium deficiency. Selenium is important in converting T4 to T3 and supports the T-helper cell, which coordinates the entire immune system.

Diabetes can damage the sensory nerves in the ear and cause hearing impairment. This is known as diabetic autonomic neuropathy. Hearing loss associated with diabetes results from severe vitamin B1 deficiency.

Vitamin B1 is the key nutrient supporting the autonomic nervous system; if you’re diabetic, you’re likely deficient. Take benfotiamine, a form of B1 that can penetrate the myelin sheath, for hearing loss associated with diabetes.

Vitamin D plays a critical role in protecting against autoimmune conditions. Many autoimmune conditions, such as autoimmune inner ear disease, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, can cause hearing impairment.

If the small bones inside your ear are damaged, you could develop hearing loss. Adequate potassium levels are vital for hearing.

    This current younger generation who live with ear buds on all the time, societal stress and alcohol excesses will lose their hearing much sooner than any previous generation.

    People around here can’t understand my sincere disgust 👎 for fruitcake and other sweets. Learning about how diabetes can cause hearing loss, because chronic high blood sugar levels may damage the nerves and small blood vessels in the inner ear, only makes me more passionate about staying away from all of the junk being pushed on us in our society. Anyhow, happy Saturday, you all, from our great Fatherland, the United States of America! 🇺🇸

    Many people fail to realize that hearing loss can come from diminished kidney function, and excessive exposure to medications, the kidneys cannot filter out, properly; as well as all around metabolic acidosis.

    Many people blast the radio in the car. And events that play loud music can cause loss of hearing. Don’t take your hearing for granted.
