Caffeine reduces the incidence of tinnitus: study

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) have found a link between caffeine intake and a reduction in the rates of tinnitus. The findings were published in the American Journal of Medicine.

For the study, the scientists tracked 65,000 women over the course of 18 years. They found that those participants who drank more coffee were at a reduced risk of suffering from tinnitus.

“We observed a significant inverse association between caffeine intake and the incidence of tinnitus among these women,” said Gary Curhan, MD, ScD, senior author of the paper and a physician-researcher in the Channing Division of Network Medicine at BWH and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Although caffeine in known to stimulate the central nervous system and influence the functioning of the inner ear, Dr Curhan noted that “[t]he reason behind this observed association is unclear.”

The study found that incidents of self-reported tinnitus were 15 per cent less frequent among women who consumed between 450-599 mg of caffeine per day (about 4.5 8 oz cups), compared to those consuming 150 mg or less (1.5 8 oz cups).

Caffeine
Dr Curhan said that further research is needed before any recommendation can be made as to increasing the caffeine intake to deal with the problem. According to the Mayo Clinic, people who drink more than five cups of coffee a day may develop muscle tremors, irritability, nervousness and insomnia.

Also the study co-author Laura Juliano referred to the side-effects of caffeine. “The negative effects of caffeine are often not recognized as such because it is a socially acceptable and widely consumed drug that is well integrated into our customs and routines. And while many people can consume caffeine without harm, for some, it produces negative effects, physical dependence, interferes with daily functioning, and can be difficult to give up, which are signs of problematic use.”

Around 10 percent of Americans are affected by tinnitus each year. The condition is usually caused by such factors as prolonged exposure to loud music or mechanical equipment.

Letter to the Editor: Natan Bauman on “The RIC as a Disruptive Technology”

Dear Editor: With personal and subjective interest I read the recent editorial in the Hearing Review June 2014 issue on RITE/RIC devices (Staff Standpoint: The RIC as a Disruptive Technology). As an inventor of the receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) in-the-canal (RIC) open ear amplification, any news and my “ears perk up.”  I continue to be drawn to any information regarding RITE/RIC in our professional media.

Vivatone hearing aid, introduced by Natan Bauman in 2004.

Vivatone hearing aid, introduced by Natan Bauman in 2004.

May I then add few comments:

1)   It is reassuring to see a continued growth of this style of amplification. From my personal surveys of talking to my colleagues (when I teach tinnitus seminars to various groups of audiologists), if this can be considered a pseudo survey, anywhere between 70-80% of RITE hearing aids are used in their private practices.

2)   A bit of historical facts regarding RIC/RITE: I would take issue with the statement that “the open fit revolution, in part” was initiated,  “by the commercial success of Resound Air.” Resound Air was introduced to the market much later than the Vivatone RITE device. If my recollection is correct, this was in 2006. When examining the industry sales, it becomes clear that, starting in the beginning of 2004, RITE hearing aids started to be part of the hearing industry market and dominate the consumer’s market in 2008. Also, the introduction of the Sebotek—a fully occluded ear device—did not produce any impact on the hearing aid market. It was not until the introduction of the open ear RITE/RIC in 2004 by the Vivatone Company when the market trend started to shift from custom device to the RITE/RIC fittings.

3) Finally, I agree that there will always be a place for custom devices, which will make the 3D ear scan technology happy. On the other hand, I foresee that some will be the off-the-shelf, non-custom devices just like the Lyric design with one size fits most (with apologies to the 3D scan technology companies).

With personal bias, I admit, humbly submitted.

—Natan Bauman, PhD, audiologist, inventor, and owner of the Hearing, Balance and Speech Center and the New England Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Clinic. Creator of the tinnitus treatment program CHaTT (Cognitive Habituation Tinnitus Therapy)

Editor’s response

The editor thanks Dr Bauman for his comments and has great respect for both him and his creation of the Vivatone hearing aid. The article incorrectly states that Vivatone started in 2008. In fact, Dr Bauman was kind enough to give me an exclusive preview of the Vivatone RIC/RITE during the 2004 AAA Convention. And, yes, I was impressed.  The Hearing Review published our first news item about his device shortly after that meeting in May 2004 (p 65).

To the best of my recollection, GN’s ReSound Air open-fit BTE was introduced in mid- to late-2003, and I believe I even talked off the record with GN’s Jodi Krusemark about its promising development at the previous Jackson Hole Rendezvous (maybe Autumn 2002?). What is certain is that The Hearing Review ran our first advertisement for ReSound Air in November 2003 (p 17).

Likewise, even earlier, the March 2003 Hearing Review (p 97) included a 2/3-page news story, introducing brothers Mike and Jim Feeley and their new hearing aid at the time, the Sebotek PAC. The company began advertising its PAC deep-fitting hearing aid in Hearing Review in May 2003 (p 29). From my understanding, the PAC was a commercial success, although I do not know what kind of unit volume it represented.

As a footnote, in our “What’s New?” section of the September 1995 issue (p 21), I interviewed Dan Anderson (and Delain Wright) at Rexton about their new CIC•BTE hybrid hearing aid—the patent for which would ultimately be purchased by the Feeley brothers at Sebotek and become the subject of a patent infringement lawsuit within the industry.

My only point here is that all of the above played important roles in the establishment of today’s RIC/RITE. However, none of this historical quibbling detracts from Dr Bauman’s considerable contributions to the development the device. Again, to the best of my knowledge, the Vivatone hearing aid was the first open-fitting system incorporated into a mini-BTE with an earbud-type device—what one could view as the first “open-fit RIC.”  In the long historical view, it might even be seen as something of a Reeses’ peanut-butter-cup collision of the ReSound Air (open-fit BTE) and PAC aids (closed/deep-fit RIC).

According to mid-year 2014 statistics generated by the Hearing Industries Assn (HIA), RIC/RITEs constituted 56.6% of the US hearing aid market. Although it’s impossible to tell what percentage is made up of open-fit instruments, it’s obviously a large proportion of sales. And Vivatone played an important role in launching the open-fit RIC/RITE revolution—starting in 2004.

By no means am I the definitive authority on this subject (I’m guessing there are many marketing and product managers who have a more detailed timeline), and others are welcome to chime in with their own perspective. Thanks for sharing your viewpoint, Dr Bauman.

— Karl Strom, editor

Update (August 20, 2014): After publishing this letter online, three Hearing Review readers pointed out that the ReSound Avance BTE actually preceded the ReSound Air BTE as an open-fit BTE. Avance was a 2-channel  BTE originally introduced to provide an economical dispensing alternative to combat Internet/OTC device sales. It was discontinued in 2003. For example, audiologist Paul Milner wrote on the Hearing Review LinkedIn page:

A product that deserves mention is the ReSound Avance, which is probably the granddaddy of the open fit devices. For those who remember it, this was a little analog device with a single trimmer control to adjust the high frequency gain. It used slim tubes to bring sound into the ear canal. Too much gain produced feedback, so the control had to be adjusted judiciously. Eventually, the ReSound Air was introduced with digital technology, advanced feedback management, and multiple channels to tailor the response. The Air also used slim tubes.  As for the Vivatone hearing aids, the introduction for me took place in New Haven, CT, on February 19th, 2004, a date that will always hold a special place for me since that was the day my first grandchild was born.

More coffee reduces tinnitus risk

More coffee reduces tinnitus risk

[Posted: Mon 18/08/2014 by Niall Hunter, Editor www.irishhealth.com]

Women who drink a lot of coffee may be unknowingly protecting themselves against developing the hearing conditions tinnitus, new research has indicated.

A US study has found that tinnitus, a persistent ringing or buzzing in the ears, is less likely to occur in women who consumed the most caffeine.

Current tinnitus treatment guidelines often advise sufferers to cut out out caffeine consumption. It is not yet clear following the new research how caffeine can protect against tinnitus.

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston looked at data on more than 65,000 nurses taking part in a major health study. The women were in their 20s to their 40s in 1991 and none had tinnitus then. They filled out diet questionnaires every four years during the research.

In 2009, the participants were asked if they had ringing or buzzing in their ears during the previous year. The researchers found that 5,289 women reported having those symptoms a few days a week or every day.

On average, the women consumed about 242 milligrams of caffeine per day, which is equal to about three eight ounce cups of coffee. The researchers said women who had higher caffeine intake, usually through coffee, had a lower risk of subsequently developing tinnitus than those with the lowest caffeine intake.

The incidence of tinnitus was 15% lower among women who consumed 450 to 599 mg/day of caffeine, equivalent to 6-8 cups of coffee, compared to the women who consumed less than 150 milligrams per day – around half a cup.

The study could not prove conclusively that caffeine protects some women from developing tinnitus, nor is it clear yet whether tinnitus sufferers should boost their caffeine consumption to ease their condition.

The research was published in The American Journal of Medicine.

I Have Tinnitus

i have tinnitus

I still remember the first time I noticed ringing in my ears: I was 15-years-old and had just gotten home from a concert. My friends and I were sitting around the kitchen table in my parents’ house, rehashing the evening’s events, when I suddenly heard a clear, high-pitched tone, sort of like the noise you hear coming from a television if you listen hard enough. I didn’t think much of it, and by the next morning, the noise was gone. I continued going to shows, pushing my way through crowds to get to the front of the stage — often next to the big stacks of speakers. But it’s a concert, and you want to hear it, and it should be loud, right?

Fast-forward 16 years to just a few nights ago. It’s 2:30 a.m. and I haven’t been able to fall asleep, despite taking a dose of trazodone (an antidepressant that’s also used as a sleep aid) three hours beforehand. The noise in my head — a high-pitched squeal that’s not unlike the sound of a tea kettle — is getting worse the more I worry over not sleeping. The fan and iPhone app that I use for white noise aren’t masking the screech. And this is the second night in a row that I’ve spent hours tossing and turning. As I check my iPhone for the millionth time, hoping that something — reading an article or scrolling mindlessly through Facebook — will help me finally fall asleep, all I can think about is how my stupid brain has ruined my life.

This is what life with tinnitus is like.

For the uninitiated, tinnitus is defined as “the perception of sound in the ears or head where no external source is present,” according to the American Tinnitus Association. If you’ve ever heard ringing (or a squeal, or any other phantom noise) that no one else can hear, then you’ve experienced tinnitus. Although the most common cause is exposure to loud noise, there are many ways to get tinnitus — it can be connected to sinus issues, medication that you’re taking, or dental problems like TMJ.

For many people, that ringing fades away after a while, either disappearing altogether or becoming virtually unnoticeable. For some, that doesn’t happen. Although it’s estimated that one in give Americans suffers from the condition, the number of people for whom tinnitus is a chronic, severe problem — one that affects day-to-day life — is far fewer. They include military veterans (one of fastest-growing groups of people with tinnitus), musicians, construction workers, and people like me, who never did anything more than go to concerts and listen to music too loud.

The first time my tinnitus flared up, I was 22-years-old. I’d listen to music through my iPod on full blast while riding the subway or during long walks around my neighborhood. But one night, I noticed the ringing as I tried to sleep. And the next night. And the night after that. Finally, two mostly-sleepless months later, I accepted that tinnitus was a part of who I was. Gradually, it lessened a bit, becoming a minor annoyance that could usually be masked by a small fan. And I was more careful, wearing foam earplugs to every single concert I attended, and never listening to headphones so loud that I couldn’t hear ambient noise around me. For nearly a decade, things seemed fine.

But things changed earlier this year, when my tinnitus spiked. I woke up one January morning with a tone in my right ear that was higher-pitched and louder than before, and it hasn’t gone away since. It eventually moved into both ears, with the left one usually being louder. This time, tinnitus affected my life in ways that I never thought imaginable: I’ve seen two ear-nose-throat doctors, both of whom oh-so-helpfully told me I’d just have to get used to the noise. (Which, yeah, I didn’t need a doctor to tell me that.) On the advice of one, I stopped drinking coffee and alcohol for about a month. I wore earplugs on the subway. For a while, I didn’t go anywhere that could possibly be noisy — no bars, no concerts, even comedy shows were out. I became a person that I didn’t quite recognize, fearful of facing the world and bitterly depressed about having a seemingly untreatable health problem.

If you’ve never experienced tinnitus firsthand, it may be hard to comprehend the toll it can take on your quality of life. Shouldn’t people suffering from it just be able to tune the noise out? Can’t you just ignore it, or cover it up? It’s not like it’s a serious illness, right? But until you’ve had one of those sleepless nights where a sound akin to a dog whistle is screaming in your head — all while knowing there is literally nothing you can do about it — you can’t really know how infuriating, and batshit-crazy-making, tinnitus can be.

One of the shitty things about tinnitus is that there is no cure; there are only coping strategies, and ways to prevent it from getting any worse. Time helps; people often habituate to the noise after a while, as I did with my first flare-up. But the best thing to do is find ways to distract yourself from the noise, whether through meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, or different masking methods. It’s generally agreed that stress and anxiety make it worse, largely because they make it difficult to not focus on the ringing. And there are plenty of times when the constant, loud, stupid ringing is impossible to ignore, especially since I’m an anxious person to begin with.

Because there is no cure for tinnitus, it’s easy to succumb to feelings of hopelessness. I think about my life in five, 10, even 50 years, and it’s hard to imagine what it will be like. Will my ears be better or worse? Will there ever be a cure? Will I be able go to concerts, or travel? Even scarier, tinnitus can be a side effect of pregnancy for some women — what happens if I have kids and it becomes too much to handle? Thinking about the possibilities is terrifying, and ultimately counterproductive, but my anxious tendencies lead me down those roads all the time. Those thoughts also lead to insomnia, the absolute worst side effect I’ve experienced. Not sleeping when all you want to do is sleep is fucking miserable. (And sleep deprivation can make tinnitus worse. Great.)

Some things have helped: I have the support of my boyfriend, an infinitely patient person who deals with my 2:30am freakouts (and requests for tea or backrubs) with aplomb. My parents are also there for me, and I have their home to visit if the stress of dealing with tinnitus becomes too much. (I’ve done that twice in the past six months — it helps.) There are still things I can do to manage the symptoms: yoga, acupuncture, different supplements, tinnitus retraining therapy (meant to help your brain adjust to the noise it’s perceiving), and good old-fashioned therapy. I’m actually lucky that my tinnitus isn’t as severe as it could be; I can generally ignore or mask the noise during the day, and I have medication to help me sleep at night when I need it.

As much as it has affected me, and as much as it fucking sucks, I have to remember that tinnitus isn’t inherently life-threatening. The sleep deprivation and the depression that come along with it are difficult, to be sure, but they’re also surmountable challenges. I’ve had plenty of low moments, times when I’ve cried hysterically, or cursed my bad luck, or wished that I didn’t have to be alive to deal with this. But I’m not about to let a stupid trick my brain is pulling on me ruin my life.

Higher Caffeine Intake Tied to Lower Incidence of Tinnitus

Higher caffeine intake is tied to a lower risk of tinnitus in women, according to a study published in the August issue of The American Journal of Medicine.

MONDAY, Aug. 11, 2014 (HealthDay News) — Higher caffeine intake is tied to a lower risk of tinnitus in women, according to a study published in the August issue of The American Journal of Medicine.

Jordan T. Glicksman, M.D., M.P.H., from the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada, and colleagues evaluated data from 65,085 women (mean age, 36.3 years) participating in the Nurses’ Health Study II without tinnitus at baseline in 1991. Participants completed lifestyle and medical history questionnaires every two years and food frequency questionnaires every four years. Tinnitus status was obtained in 2009.

The researchers found that mean caffeine intake was 242.3 mg/day. There were 5,289 incident cases of tinnitus reported over 18 years of follow-up. Caffeine intake and the incidence of tinnitus had a significant inverse association. The multivariable adjusted hazard ratios were 0.85 for those who consumed 450 to 599 mg/day and 0.79 for those who consumed 600 mg/day or more, compared to women with intake less than 150 mg/day (equivalent to one 8-ounce cup of coffee).

“In this prospective study, higher caffeine intake was associated with a lower risk of incident tinnitus in women,” the authors write.
