Online hearing test
Find out how good your hearing is in just three minutes. The online hearing test provides valuable information about your hearing.

Connect Hearing is the the exclusive national hearing health partner of Diabetes Canada. Studies show that hearing loss is twice as common in people who have diabetes than in those who don’t. Through this partnership we have the opportunity, with Diabetes Canada, to bring awareness to the relationship between hearing loss and diabetes, ensuring that all Canadians are proactive in their health while actively aging.

Diabetes and hearing loss

  • According to Diabetes Canada more than 11 million Canadians have prediabetes or diabetes. 
  • Organs, blood vessels and nerves – including those in the inner ear - can be damaged by the body’s inability to use or process insulin.
  • Studies show that hearing loss is twice as common in people who have Diabetes than in those who don’t.
  • Hearing loss and Diabetes are two of the most prevalent chronic heath conditions faced by older adults in Canada today.
Our local hearing care professionals can help you to understand the choices available to best suit your individual hearing needs and a hearing test makes it simple for you to find the information you need to approach your hearing loss with confidence.
