Bel Marra Health Reports on Recent Research Revealing A Gene To Restore Hearing Loss

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a recent study revealing that the mutation in the SLC26A4 gene causing hearing loss could be restored.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/general-health-2/could-a-gene-restore-your-hearing/) hearing loss is a problem that affects roughly 13 percent of the United States – this means 38.2 million people in the country suffer from partial or total loss of hearing. Whether it's noise-related hearing loss, age-related deafness, or even genetic hearing impairment, the loss of one of the most important senses we have can impact many aspects of one's life. Fortunately, the results of a new research study suggest that these effects may not have to be permanent after all, locating a specific gene that may hold the key to restoring hearing loss for good.

The journal PLoS Genetics has recently published an article detailing the success of a project at Kansas State University. The researchers at the university attempted to restore balance and hearing. Their findings show promise for great things in the future of auditory exploration.

The study examined hereditary or genetic hearing loss, specifically deafness caused by a mutation in the SLC26A4 gene. The mutation of this gene can cause pendrin (a protein that is found in the cells of your inner ear) expression to be reduced, which can lead to swelling in the inner ear. This swelling can not only lead to loss of balance, but also hearing loss. Thus, the goal of the study was fairly simple: fix the genetic mutation problem, and the ear should start working properly once again.

During the study, the first problem researchers encountered was that
