Recovery from noise-induced injury was significantly impaired in diabetic mice at 4 and 8 kHz. The time course of ABR threshold shifts at each frequency in diabetic (DM) (n = 4) and control (Ctrl) (n = 4) groups after noise exposure (4-kHz OBN, 105-dB SPL for 2 h) (AD). Data are means ± SE. *P < 0.05 diabetic vs. control group.
