High Blood Pressure

  Is high blood pressure related to hearing loss?

Some conditions associated with high blood pressure (such as hypolipoproteinemia—extremely elevated cholesterol and triglyceride) are also associated with sensorineural hearing loss. In general, it appears that people with high blood pressure have a higher incidence of hearing loss. They may also be more prone to noise induced hearing loss than others.
