Can high level of triglycerides cause tinnitus because of poor blood circulation?

Medical science has yet to establish a connection between poor blood circulation and tinnitus. However, a connection between a high level of triglycerides and slowing down of blood circulation is a natural fact. As a matter of fact, when the circulation of blood slows down beyond a point, this is what results in a heart attack. But there is certainly no connection between heart trouble and tinnitus. Tinnitus is more commonly known as ringing in the ears. Once hearing loss begins to occur due to any reason, the brain begins to make up its own kind of sound to make up for loss of hearing sounds from the outside world. This "sound" is called tinnitus. Hearing loss can occur due to many reasons. One of the most prominent and common ones is age. Other reasons can include factors such as constant exposure to loud noises. This could mean loud music, or your being in a place which has constant exposure to loud sounds. It could mean that you live near a railway station or some sort of factory that employs heavy machinery. Basically, when sounds become so loud that you begin to include them as part and parcel of your daily life, then you have very high chances of developing tinnitus. Sometimes, tinnitus can also be a symptom of something else. There are some general disorders of the ear that can have tinnitus as a symptom. But this would normally be common and the tinnitus would recede if your problem is taken care of. There are also some drugs like common aspirin which can cause tinnitus if overused. However, this would only happen if the drug was overused to the extent of being abused by the body.

It is extremely important to take care of your health if you are suffering from high triglycerides. This is the worst kind of heart condition to have. It basically indicates that you are, to put it in common language, a heart attack waiting to happen. In order to reduce your triglycerides and bring your heart condition under control, it is important that you follow a proper and healthy lifestyle. Make it a point to exercise every single day, even if it is mild exercise for a short while. Keep your diet healthy, low in fats and carbohydrates and high in proteins, vitamins and minerals. This will automatically bring down your levels of high triglycerides and restore the normal condition of your heart.
