Johns Hopkins University Alert
Hearing loss increases risk for falls. Researchers tested the hearing of 2,017 adults (40 to 65 years) and asked them about recent falls.
Findings: Those with even mild hearing loss were three times more likely to have fallen within the previous year than those with normal hearing. Each 10 decibel loss of hearing raised risk of falling 1.4-fold.
Theory: Hearing loss may overwork the brain, leaving fewer resources to maintain gait and balance.
