Study Shows A Link Between Osteoporosis And Sudden Hearing Loss.

Summary: Published June 11, 2015

"...those with osteoporosis are 76 percent more likely to develop sudden onset hearing loss."

"Using information culled from a national health database, a team lead by Dr. Kai-Jen Tien at the Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan City, Taiwan compared 10,000 people diagnosed with osteoporosis between 1999 and 2008 to 32,000 people without the condition. 89 percent of the subjects were women. While, in general, those with osteoporosis were 76 percent more likely to develop SSHL, the results for women were even more grave: women with osteoporosis were 87 percent more likely to develop SSHL than the general population."
