The world is full of loud noises — concerts, airplanes, fireworks, motorcycles, hairdryers…you name it, loud noises are everywhere. And while many of us take noise in stride, the concern is the damage that it can do to hearing. Hearing loss is twice as common in people who have diabetes compared with people who don’t have diabetes; in people with prediabetes, hearing loss is 30 percent higher than in people without the condition. While the exact cause of hearing loss in people with diabetes isn’t entirely clear, researchers believe that high blood glucose may damage small blood vessels in the ears; in addition, damage to auditory nerves may contribute to hearing loss, as well.
Aiming to keep your blood sugars within your target range can help protect your hearing. Using Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs can help, too. These earplugs reduce noise evenly, thanks to innovative attenuation filters — this means that sound quality is preserved without muffling voices or music. These earplugs provide a 21-decibel drop in noise so that you can continue to talk or work while lessening the risk of hearing loss. Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs’ triple flange design will fit most medium to large ear sizes; plus, you’ll receive two pairs of different-sized hypoallergenic earplug shells and a carrying case to keep them protected. Protect your hearing with Eargasm High Fidelity Eargplugs (they make a perfect gift, too!).
