Is hearing loss common?

Over 40 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Hearing loss can impact anyone at any age. The onset of hearing loss can occur as we grow older. This can be gradual and undetectable and only a hearing test by a hearing care professional will tell you for sure.

What happens if my hearing loss goes untreated?

Hearing loss should be treated as soon as it is identified. The longer your hearing loss goes untreated, the more likely it is you brain will “forget” how to understand speech. Untreated hearing loss can also have negative effects on your cognitive, physical and social functioning as you may be less engaged in conversations and begin to withdraw from activities that you used to enjoy.

Hearing loss can take an emotional toll.

Because of its association with old age, hearing loss can often feel embarrassing.  Feelings of isolation, loneliness, and frustration can build over time if a hearing loss is not treated. Reconnect with your loved ones by getting the hearing care you need. Lack of treatment will only allow your hearing issues to persist and worsen.

Tinnitus

Commonly described as a ringing, roar, or buzzing in the ears, tinnitus is a common symptom of hearing loss.

A woman with auditory deprivation

Auditory Deprivation

The auditory system, or hearing center of the brain, needs constant stimulation. If hearing loss goes untreated, your ability to understand speech gradually declines. This condition is called auditory deprivation.

Dementia

Recent studies have shown that hearing loss can contribute to or increase an individual’s risk for dementia. 

How do I convince my loved one to get a hearing test?

Trying to get a loved one to get a hearing test and get the hearing care they need can be incredibly difficult. Reassure them that hearing loss is common. Share personal examples of how their hearing loss has impacted your relationship with them. Be patient and encouraging.

Do I need a hearing aid?

Before we ever talk about a hearing aid, we need to understand your hearing loss. Through a hearing test, we can first identify the extent of your hearing loss and your specific hearing needs. Hearing aids will be recommended by a Hearing Care Professional if your particular hearing loss requires it.
