Objectives: End stage renal failure patients, face multiple complications. One of them is the involvement of auditory system. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and degree of hearing loss in CKD patients on haemodialysis. Methods and Results: This cross sectional study was conducted from July 2014 to June2015.The subjects consist of 50 CKD patients on haemodialysis. The patients were from a tertiary care teaching hospital. The baseline characteristics and risk factors such as age, sex, exposure to ototoxic drugs, diabetes, hypertension, renal functions, electrolytes and duration of dialysis were recorded for all patients. The patients were evaluated for their hearing function using pure tone audiometry. Association of CKD patients with haemodialysis for hearing loss was compared with duration of dialysis. The prevalence of hearing loss in CKD patients on dialysis was found to be 42%. Prevalence of hearing loss based on duration of dialysis is 52.4% in patient who got HD < 1 month, 23.8. % who got HD for 1-6 months and 23.8% in >6 months group. Conclusion: Mild sensorineural hearing loss was seen to be relatively prevalent in patients with CKD on haemodialysis. Hearing loss was seen to be inversely associated with duration of dialysis.
