Hearing Loss and Healthcare Access among Adults
In this study, we examined the association between HL and access to medical care and prescription drugs among individuals 50+ with and without HL. We used nationally representative 2013–2014 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey data, consisting of 1,977 adults with HL and 17,399 without. We applied an inverse propensity score weighting and regression modeling to adjust for any potential differences in health and socioeconomic conditions between the two groups. Adults with HL were more likely to be white, less educated, poorer, and with public insurance (p < 0.001). They were also likely to have hypertension, heart dis...

Its evolution is muddied by ambiguities around what nutraceuticals actually are and how they should be managed.The result has been polarization between over-zealous regulation of so-called health foods, and a grey market where products have skirted approval procedures through questionable positioning or by exploiting alterna...
