The Laryngoscope recently published a study regarding the relationship between hearing loss and teen obesity which reached epidemic proportions in the US. Researchers looked at 1,488 overweight boys and girls between ages 12 to 19, coming to conclusion that hearing loss is another health risk in this population. The hearing loss might occur due to inflammation caused by obesity and will progress from one ear to both in adulthood. What weight loss strategies do you recommend for obese teenagers?
