(KTVI) - Are you having trouble hearing?  Studies show hearing loss is closely linked to other health conditions, including heart health.

Cynthia Koch with Hearing Pro stopped by to talk about the connection.

She discussed how likely those with hearing loss are to have heart disease, and whether this risk just applies to older adults.

Koch talked about the importance of yearly hearing screenings.

These are important to predict early changes in hearing loss and to monitor heart health.

Those who want more information on hearing health are encouraged to visit the Hearing Pro Health and Wellness Fair.
