      I very much wonder how the results would be impacted if they controlled for cause of tinnitus, as I would imagine different genders have slightly different risk profiles for getting tinnitus (and at different frequencies) based on personality, lifestyle, and occupation. For example, most dental hygienists are female and most construction workers are male. They may get tinnitus at different frequencies based on their work.

      The study is really looking at improvement so it's sort of assuming the only thing that matters is TFI scores, independent of cause -- unless I'm misreading it.
