What Causes Ear Wax Build Up?
Ear wax build up can have various causes, just like most other symptoms. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose ear wax build up, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "ear wax build up" as a symptom. For example, EFA need.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
thick cracked heel calluses
severe leg cramps caused by walking
severe shoulder tightness
type 2 diabetes IDD
hydrogenated fat consumption
cysts in breasts
aspirin is effective pain reliever
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of ear wax build up.
Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis
is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.
In the Ear/Hearing Symptoms
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about ear wax accumulation:
How much wax accumulates in your ears?
→ Don't know
→ Very little / none as far as I can tell
→ Some, needs very occasional cleaning
→ Quite a lot, requires regular cleaning
→ A lot - blocks ears and requires frequent cleaning
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate no ear wax accumulation, some ear wax build up, ear wax build up or much ear wax build up, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as EFA (Essential Fatty Acid) Requirement
