MOD­IFY YOUR DIET

Nu­tri­tional im­bal­ances can con­tribute to age-re­lated hear­ing loss and tin­ni­tus. To pro­tect your hear­ing, make sure you’re eat­ing a diet that in­cludes zinc (found in red meat, chicken, oys­ters, beans and nuts); Vi­ta­min A (found in sweet pota­toes, car­rots and dark leafy greens) and mag­ne­sium (found in dark leafy greens, av­o­cado, nuts and seeds). Re­searchers from Penn­syl­va­nia State Univer­sity have also es­tab­lished a link be­tween lack of iron and hear­ing loss: the risk of a per­son with iron de­fi­ciency anaemia devel­op­ing sen­sorineu­ral hear­ing loss is 82pc higher than a per­son who doesn’t have the con­di­tion.
