Having hearing loss is not only a health issues, it is a quality of life inhibitor. Landmark Hearing’s patient, Marlyn Buddenbaum was diagnosed with hearing loss and was at the point where she could no longer understand her grandchildren. She stated,
“I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Landmark was in my neighborhood. The entire staff was very accommodating, helping me to set up an appointment that fit into my schedule. My husband and I met with Dr. Brandon Cyrus. He explained all the different types of hearing aids, helping me to select a pair that not only fit my personal needs but that also had Bluetooth technology. When I receive phone calls now, it goes directly into my hearing aids for clearer reception! Dr. Cyrus made it an easy learning process, even allowing me to email him directly so that I was able to get the best use of my hearing aids. It has made such a difference in my life, both socially and personally to remain in control. I can understand my grandchildren again!!”

Diabetes is becoming an extremely common disease, making it a large contributor to hearing loss. Though under-recognized, hearing loss can be a serious complication of uncontrolled diabetes.
In 2008, the National Institute of Health (NHI) conducted a study that showed hearing loss is about twice as likely to occur in adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes than those who do not have the disease. After testing over 4,700 participants, the NHI found that there was a strong correlation between diabetes and the participant’s ability to hear a range of frequencies in both ears. Of those participants with diabetes, 54% reported a hearing loss of high-frequency sounds. Continue reading
