Can High Blood Pressure Cause Deafness?

By    |   Monday, 21 Jul 2014 04:55 PM

Question: I have high blood pressure and also suffer from hearing problems. Is there some connection between the two, and what should I do?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. There is no direct relationship between hypertension and hearing loss, unless you have had a hypertensive stroke that affected nerve or brain tissue involved in your hearing.

Most times, age-related hearing loss is tied to problems with the cochlea and ear drum areas. Noise-induced loss is also very common.

The likelihood is that your hearing loss is not related to your blood pressure.
