Did you know?
Type 2 diabetes develops gradually. You may not realise - for quite some time - that you have high blood sugar levels OR the damage it is causing.
Joining the dots between diabetes, health & safety:
Hearing loss is twice as likely in people with diabetes and 30% more likely to occur in people with pre-diabetes compared to those with normal blood glucose levels. This is believed to be due to nerve and blood vessel damage to the inner ear - likely caused by the high blood glucose (sugar) levels that characterise diabetes.
If you aren't willing to risk the impact and risk to life that hearing loss has on worker health and safety, contact us today. We can arrange a timely service to coincide with National Safety Month 2017.
