Help prevent hearing loss with vitamin A

If you want to make sure you don't lose your keen sense of hearing, make sure you get enough vitamin A in your diet.

Some cases of hearing loss may be linked to a vitamin-A deficiency. Studies show that a lack of vitamin A in the diet first increases the ear's sensitivity to sound. In other words, your hearing is actually more sensitive during the first stages of deficiency.

However, an increased sensitivity to noise increases the chances of noise-induced hearing loss. The very sensitive ear can be damaged more easily and quickly than a normal ear. So the vitamin-A deficiency does not actually cause hearing loss. It simply makes the ear more sensitive to sound - which increases the chances of hearing loss due to noise damage.

If you suspect you may have a problem with your hearing, even if your ears seem supersensitive, talk to your doctor immediately. He can help you determine whether you need more vitamin A in your diet.

Go fishing for vitamin A. Vitamin A is found in many sources. Cod liver oil is loaded with vitamin A, so much, in fact, that it can be toxic if you take too much. After cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel, tuna and other fish also contain vitamin A. Fish also contains vitamin D. Vitamin D helps prevent bone loss and may help strengthen the bones in the ear's hearing mechanism, which can help keep your hearing sharp as you age.

Other good sources of vitamin A are butter; egg yolks; cod liver oil; liver; yellow vegetables; and green, leafy vegetables. Some fruits are also good sources of vitamin A including prunes, pineapples, oranges, limes and cantaloupes.
