Abstract This study examined the effect of autonomic neuropathy on hearing in diabetes mellitus. Twelve diabetics with autonomic neuropathy and eleven healthy controls were examined for hearing loss using standard audiological tests. Several subjects in both groups had some abnormal hearing tests, but the incidence was no greater in the diabetic group. No group trends were apparent. Diabetic autonomic neuropathy is unlikely to be associated with hearing deficits.
