Numerous factors can lead to hearing loss, including noise, disease, genetics, medications, and injury. Wikipedia SNPs associated with risk of hearing loss:

  • Nonsyndromic hearing loss
  • Six SNPs in the SLC26A4 gene are associated with Pendred syndrome, as reported by 23andMe:
    • i5012616 (also called L236P) - risk allele C
    • i5000003 (also called E384G) - risk allele G
    • i5012618 (also called T416P) - risk allele C
    • i5000693 (also called V138F) - risk allele T
    • i5000002 (also called H723R) - risk allele G
    • i5000696 (also called L445W) - risk allele G
