Higher body mass index and larger waist circumference are associated with increased risk of hearing loss in women.
Cognitive Decline - adults with untreated hearing loss are more likely to develop problems thinking and remembering than adults whose hearing is normal. Degraded hearing may force the brain to devote too much energy to processing sound.
