Diabetes Drugs: Side Effects
The Audiology Project is pleased to announce new information on diabetes medications that may affect hearing and balance or that could interfere with a balance assessment!
Dr. Robert M. DiSogra is an expert in the field of pharmacology in audiology. His work began in the diabetes arena at the request of Dr. Kathy Dowd, Executive Director of The Audiology Project. Dr. DiSogra did an extensive review of all FDA approved diabetes medications in 2016.
His most recent article here has been revised to reflect new terminology and improved focus for audiological medical monitoring of diabetes treatment medications. As part of the case history intake, audiologists review medications and medication compliance with their patients. This provides a valuable piece of the puzzle of oversight for oto-vestibulotoxic monitoring.
