I have heard that diabetes patients will have hearing loss. Is that true?

Hey EverYbody! I am Florence. I am 45 years old. I live in Toronto. I am a diabetic patient for the last two years. I regularly take medicines for that. Last day, after completing my health checkups, my audiogram results were near to 30 dB. So, my doctor suggested me to consult the hearing doctor specialist in Toronto ( https://houseofhearing.ca/audiologist/ ) . I had some hearing loss. But, I ignored that because when we grow old, we will face hearing problems. But when my doctor suggested consulting the hearing specialist, I decided to go for that. I have heard that diabetes patients will have hearing loss. Is that true? Is it necessary to consult a doctor?

I have some hearing loss, but was never told that it was diabetes related. In all the material I have read, it has not been mentioned, either.
