May 31, 2008
How can HIV affect hearing loss and for how long is the damage, is the HIV medication a factor in hearing loss.
| Response from Dr. Moyle
The general answer is no, HIV and widely used medications do not affect hearing. Occasionally infections like shingles can trigger hearing loss, and very rarely tumours but most commonly its just aging nd too much using MP3 players. Your doctor can refer to an audiologist to test your hering if needs be regards Dr Moyle
