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 in risk measured against those walking less than one hour per week. “We do not advocate walking only 2 hours per week however this represents a significant reduction in health risk by adding a modicum of physical activity. In the relationship of overall health to daily walking the more we walk the better the outcome and that holds true for nearly any part of the body,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk.

"We often think of hearing loss as an inevitable part of the aging process, but these findings provide evidence that potentially modifiable risk factors, such as maintaining a healthy weight and staying physically active, may help in the prevention of hearing loss or delay its progression," stated Sharon Curhan, lead researcher and author of the study in a press release from Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

“There have been other studies showing that age related vision deterioration, even some eye related maladies can be forestalled by increasing physical activity levels. It is not a coincidence that BMI factors into the equation since lower levels of physical activity almost always lead to higher levels of obesity and BMI,” stated Steve Bordley, CEO of TrekDesk Treadmill Desk. “This study is yet further evidence that the human machine requires movement and healthy lifestyles to remain at peak performance throughout a lifetime.”
