Type 2 diabetes can affect many parts of the body. The failure of certain organs or systems of the body may indicate this serious chronic disease. Hearing loss is one of the symptoms that should alert and motivate people to get tested for diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes develops as a result of insulin resistance, that is, a violation of the metabolic response to insulin. The pancreas regularly produces the hormone, but the body's cells cannot utilize it. When the beta cells in the pancreas receive a false signal that insulin is not enough, they release more hormone. They are gradually depleted and can no longer produce enough insulin. As a result, blood glucose levels rise and chronic hyperglycemia develops. As a result, sugars, an important source of energy, cause damage to the vessels that supply blood to vital organs. This leads to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, writes the British newspaper Express.
Experts inform that a noticeable hearing loss may be a sign that the pancreas is having problems with insulin production. Diabetes has reported that gradual hearing loss may be a warning sign of type 2 diabetes. The exact link between developing deafness and diabetes is not yet fully clear for healthcare professionals. But this is probably due to damage to the auditory nerve.
Previously, the well-known media doctor Alexander Myasnikov told which products reduce the risk of developing this chronic disease. He also recalled that genetic predisposition and overweight contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes.
