Possible link between sleep apnea and hearing loss

Researchers say, there may be a link between sleep apnea and hearing loss.

Data from 14,000 people found sleep apnea was associated with a 31-percent increase in high frequency hearing loss and a 90-percent increase in low frequency hearing loss, such as speech.

The connection could be due to inflammation in blood vessels which is common in both conditions.
