The objective of the review study was to assess whether a relationship exists between diabetes mellitus (DM) and hearing impairment. And we would investigate the cause of hearing impairment under diabetes mellitus. At the beginning of 1990, there were not several evidences, but there were many evidences of hearing loss by diabetes mellitus at the late of 1990. In the clinical study, hearing impairment was due to duration of DM, hyperglycemia, aging, and poor control of DM. There are many peripheral sensory nerves including auditory sensory nerves all over the body. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is recognized as the most common complications of DM. Auditory neuropathy in diabetic peripheral neuropathy is often characterized by normal thresholds, present otoacoustic emission, poor speech discrimination, absents acoustic reflexes, absents or abnormal auditory brainstem response waveform. It may be needed to ABR (auditory brainstem response) test for the early detection of hearing impairment under the diabetic complications.
