Description

According to the literature, type1- and type2-diabetes negatively impact on the auditory and vestibular organs of the inner ear. Although several theories have been proposed, the exact underlying mechanisms responsible for diabetes-induced damage remain uncertain. Our hypothesis is that the inner ear is a direct target for insulin action and thus that inner ear insulin resistance could contribute to inner ear dysfunction in diabetes.
