Association of Iron Deficiency Anemia With Hearing Loss in US Adults

JAMA otolaryngology-- head & neck surgery | 30 Dec 2016

KM Schieffer, CH Chuang, J Connor, JA Pawelczyk and DL Sekhar
Abstract
Hearing loss in the US adult population is linked to hospitalization, poorer self-reported health, hypertension, diabetes, and tobacco use. Because iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a common and easily correctable condition, further understanding of the association between IDA and all types of hearing loss in a population of US adults may help to open new possibilities for early identification and appropriate treatment.
