Federal, State and Local Advocacy for Audiology Management of Diabetes - September 25, 2018

The issue of audiology management of diabetes related hearing loss and balance problems was unknown to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  in 2011 when they were first contacted.  Although CDC acknowledged the co-morbidity within months of being contacted and receiving research confirming the link, it was not until 2016 that they would recommend persons with diabetes receive a hearing test.  Even then, CDC was concerned about using the word "audiology" due to it being ‘foreign’ to many patients and providers.  With these issues now behind us, The Audiology Project (TAP) has been instructed to provide educational materials for use by CDC and the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) for professional and patient care.  Audiologists must understand the issue in order to reach out to federal, state and local medical professionals and educate them on the critical need for a baseline audiology evaluation at the time of diabetes diagnosis and ongoing monitoring and treatment as necessary.
