How your tinnitus can be affected by sugar
Sugar chills are something we can all suffer from, but can it damage our ears and cause one's tinnitus to increase? To understand this, we need to look at how our blood sugar is affected by what we eat.
The audiology company Treble Health writes in one of its blogs about the connection between sugar and how it can affect your tinnitus. Before going into how it can affect your tinnitus, they first explain the role of sugar in our body.
"Our bodies break down carbohydrates into glucose, a form of sugar. When insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, interacts with cells in our body, the sugar in our blood enters the cells. These cells then use the sugar to create energy and perform its function This is a normal process that is important for many organs, including the inner ear, which need a steady supply of oxygen and glucose.
Over time, the cells can develop resistance to what the insulin is intended to do, meaning it may take more insulin to achieve the same goals as before. This can lead to something called hyperinsulinemia.
Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia can cause blood sugar levels to remain high because the sugars cannot easily enter the cells. Having a high amount of sugar in the blood can damage blood vessels and auditory nerves and can also negatively affect the oxygen supply to the inner ear and cause disturbances in its various functions.
Hyperinsulinemia can also interfere with how the inner ear regulates the appropriate amounts of potassium and sodium in its fluid. This can lead to reduced function of cells in the inner ear that help transport sound to the auditory nerve."
