Determine the impact of tinnitus and its impact on the quality of life (QoL) among elderly subjects (??? 65 years)
with subjective tinnitus. Regarding Epidemiology of Hearing Loss Study, self-reported data on tinnitus and
quality of life were assessed and obtained by interview at the first follow-up examination (1998???2000; N = 2800;
ages 53???97 years). The Medical Outcomes Study Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) was used to assess quality of life.
Results reveal that scores decreased (worsened)as the severity of tinnitus increased (None, Mild, Moderate, Severe)
for the parameters like Bodily Pain, Physical, Vitality, and Mental Health domains, and the Physical Component
Summary scale (F-tests for linear trend, p < .05).On the other hand scores were better for those individuals who first
reported tinnitus at the initial stage of follow-up (five-year incidence of tinnitus) compared to those who reported
tinnitus at the baseline and follow-up examinations (prevalent tinnitus). This study indicates clear associations
between tinnitus and reduced quality of life in this large cohort of older adults.
