Investigation of Auditory Processing Deficits in Patients With Type II Diabetes Mellitus (DM)
The incidence of DM is 9.6% in the USA with its prevalence increasing globally (NIDDKD, 2005). A common, but under-recognized complication of DM is hearing difficulty (~ 93%). However, the nature of this often sub-clinical dysfunction is still poorly understood. The aim of this study is to better understand DM-related hearing loss.
