Bel Marra Health Reports on Recent Research Revealing Weight to Be a Contributing Factor to Hearing Loss
Date:12/10/2013

he results showed that women had a 17 percent greater chance of developing hearing loss if their BMI was between 30 and 34. Women with a BMI higher than 40 had a 25 percent greater chance of developing hearing loss than those with a healthy BMI (lower than 25).

In terms of waist circumference, a healthy measure was 71 cm (approximately 28 inches) or less. Women with a waist between 80 and 88 cm (31 and 35 inches) in circumference had an 11 percent higher chance of developing hearing problems than their healthy counterparts, while women with a waist circumference greater than 88 cm (35 inches) had a 27 percent higher chance.

Higher levels of physical activity proved to lower the risk of hearing loss. The women that were the most active physically had a 17 percent lower chance of developing hearing problems than less physically active women. Women that walked more than two hours per week had a 15 percent lower chance of hearing problems, while women that walked less than one hour per week had a greater chance.

The evidence suggests hearing loss is linked to both obesity and activity levels. Maintaining a healthy weight and staying active could help to reduce the risk factors of hearing loss, and may even be able to prevent it or slow its progression.

Researchers will need to study the connection between obesity and hearing loss further to determine just how critical a role health and exercise will play, but this study has shed some light on just how important it is to stay healthy and do plenty of exercise. If these two things can connect to hearing loss, it could open doors in the scientific community as to what other health problems may be connected to age-related hearing loss.
