Hearing loss is a common health issue caused by aging, disease, noise, and genetic factors. Besides ear diseases, systemic diseases can be leading causes in hearing loss. This paper investigates the influence of systemic diseases on hearing loss by examining the relationship between hearing loss and representative kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, arterial sclerosis, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, cataracts, hyperlipidemia and immune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In addition, hearing loss caused by aging, namely the influence of bone density and menopause in women on hearing loss, was reviewed.
