Simple Steps for Women Who Want to Forestall Age Related Hearing Loss
Date:12/3/2013

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Many Americans have come to accept declining mental and physical abilities as inevitable due to the onset of old age however recent research is showing that simply walking two hours per week could lower the risk of age related hearing loss in women. The challenge in an ever-increasing sedentary nation is motivating individuals to move more throughout the day. TrekDesk Treadmill Desk offers a unique solution.

A new study published in the American Journal of Medicine highlights findings from Brigham and Women’s Hospital that shows that walking and lower Body Mass Index (BMI) scores are associated with a lower risk of age related hearing loss in women.

The study was gleaned from data in the Nurse’s Health Study II involving 68,421 women from 1989 to 2009 (representing 1.1 million person/years follow up) analyzed against BMI, physical activity, and waist circumference metrics and self reported hearing loss.

The researchers discovered that women with BMI of 30-34 had a 17% higher risk of hearing loss while those with a BMI of 40+ had a 25% elevated relative risk of hearing loss when compared to study participants with BMI’s of less than 25%.

Since America’s waistlines and associated BMI’s have surged in the past 30 years, on the surface this study represents more bad news for the state or our nation’s health. However, there is a silver lining stuck way in the back of that cloudy horizon. Walking.

The same study found that irrespective of BMI those participants that were more physically active over the course of their lives significantly lowered their risk of hearing loss as they aged. Walking just 2 hours per week was associated with a 15% decrease
