“Ears Are the Window to the Heart.” Why Getting Your Hearing Checked Is Important for National Heart Month

Valentine’s Day may have passed but February is the official American Heart Month. This means that this is the perfect time to show your heart and hearing a little love.

Studies have shown that heart disease and hearing loss could be linked. Researchers have found that a healthy cardiovascular system has a positive effect on hearing. Contrarily, insufficient blood flow and trauma to the blood vessels of the inner ear can contribute to hearing loss. “The inner ear is so sensitive to blood flow that it is possible that abnormalities in the cardiovascular system could be noted here earlier than in other less sensitive parts of the body,” says David R. Friedland, MD, PhD, Professor and Vice-Chair of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

When using hearing aids and addressing hearing loss, cognitive skills are improved, thus helping people’s quality of life. Get your heart and hearing checked and visit WorldHeartDay.com to learn more about cardiovascular health.
