Diabetes is a major factor which may prolong the severity and duration of discharging ears and hence further deteriorating the hearing.
Tinnitus can be treated if we can restore the hearing back. I am not saying that It can be cured in all cases but if I can address the cause of hearing loss or amplify his hearing by proper hearing aid and using tinnitus maskers, Tinnitus can be helped.
If you do not want any surgery, then hearing aid is the best option to treat hearing handicapped.
