Abstract

Audiovestibular functions in 50 cases of diabetes mellitus have been evaluated to find out the type of hearing loss. Diabetes mellitus causes a significant bilateral symmetrical hearing loss at higher frequencies and with the progress of disease and added complications the hearing further deteriorates. On control of diabetes hearing changes are found to be irreversible. However vestibular functions remain uninvolved in cases of diabetes mellitus. A direct correlation was found between hearing loss and increasing blood sugar level.
