Iron Deficiency Anemia Tied to Hearing Loss

January 13, 2017 by Raji

A new study found a correlation between iron deficiency anemia and hearing loss. A study of over 300,000 people found that those with iron deficiency anemia were two and a half times more likely to have hearing loss.

The study offers no concrete reason why the two would be related, but suggests that it could be because of reduced bloodflow to the inner ear.
