In order to evaluate cochlear function in Type 1 diabetes mellitus, this study analyses otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) on normal hearing subjects with diabetes and on controls. Patients with Type 1 diabetes (n=60), with a mean age of 31+/-6.23 years, mean disease duration of 17.5+/-8.9 years, and mean HbA1c of 8.1+/-1.8%, of whom 43% had signs of retinopathy and 28% had clinical signs of neuropathy, were studied. All patients underwent an OAE analysis and brainstem-evoked potentials. Fifty-eight… CONTINUE READING
