Does Hearing Loss Cause Alzheimer's?

Hearing loss is one of the most common diseases worldwide. According to statistics, more than 30% of the elderly over 60 years old in China are deeply plagued by hearing loss and ear diseases, and may cause Alzheimer's disease.

Auditory nerves

We can hear and understand sounds, not just ears. The cochlea of our inner ear is also connected to the auditory nerve, and the sound is converted into nerve impulses, transmitted through the auditory nerve to the auditory center of the cerebral cortex, and connected with the language center, and finally understands the semantic meaning.

Untreated hearing loss and Alzheimer's disease

When hearing loss, the auditory pathway is restricted, and the stimulation of the brain is significantly reduced, which in turn affects the speech recognition ability of patients with hearing loss, so there is the most common manifestation of untreated senile hearing loss: can hear sound, but cannot understand what to say. In the long term, it may lead to Alzheimer's disease.

Hearing loss and Alzheimer's disease

When the elderly have hearing impairment, communication with the outside world will become difficult, they will avoid thinking problems, and language communication and other behaviors will be reduced, which will lead to Alzheimer's disease in the long run, and the worse the hearing, the higher the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Even after excluding age and other influencing factors, those with mild hearing loss are nearly twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's disease as those with normal hearing; People with moderate hearing loss are 3 times more likely to suffer from Alzheimer's disease; In severe hearing loss, it is up to 5 times higher. Therefore, hearing compensation after hearing loss is very important, and wearing hearing aids is one of the best ways to compensate for the best hearing.
