Abstract

Data from 342 men who are participants in the Caerphilly Collaborative Heart Disease Study were used to replicate a previous report of a significant relationship between measures of whole-blood viscosity and hearing levels in persons with sensorineural hearing impairment. In the unselected data, there were significant relationships between measures of whole-blood viscosity at high shear rates and hearing threshold levels at 2000 and 4000 Hz, even after accounting for the effects of age and socioeconomic group. In a subset of the data containing 124 persons selected on the basis of likely sensorineural hearing impairment, there were significant relationships between whole-blood viscosity and hearing level at all frequencies, with stronger effects at the higher frequencies. The data support the contention of a potentially important relationship between whole-blood viscosity and sensorineural hearing impairment.
