Hearing loss due to allergies
Norrisengineer posted:
Someone told me of a case where severe permanent hearing loss resulted from an ongoing allergy to coffee. I have been suffering from increasing hearing loss for years and have other food allergies. My ear Doctor says its just bad genes as I have never been subject to loud noises but is a sensory degeneration. Has anyone heard of hearing loss being attributed to coffee or other food allergies?
Gregory M Metz, MD responded:
I do not know of a mechanism by which allergic reactions would lead to hearing loss.
Norrisengineer replied to Gregory M Metz, MD's response:
Thank you for your time! I suspected what you say to be the case, but I'm no expert. Now I can go back to my morning java fix!
