Hearing Loss Impacts Your Hearing Health
Recent studies have shown that hearing loss directly impacts the quality of your life and your hearing health. When left untreated hearing loss can be tied to increased anxiety, depression, loneliness, and social disorders.
Even mild cases of hearing loss can have a major impact on mental health, relationships, work productivity, and earning power. In addition, it can also increase your risk of developing Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Hearing loss can occur at any age, but the majority of hearing loss is found in adults over the age of 50, because aging is a common underlying cause.
Getting Help Matters
Many people ignore hearing loss, accepting it as part of “growing old.” But ignoring hearing loss is dangerous since it only gets worse over time. As many as 86% of people with hearing loss fail to seek help. Early detection and treatment goes a long way to preserve your hearing. That’s why medical professionals agree that adults over the age of 50 should schedule an annual hearing evaluation as part of their routine wellness care.
"As many as 86% of people with hearing loss fail to seek help!"
The good news? Those who address their hearing loss can take advantage of today’s advanced hearing aids to lead healthier lives. They are much less likely to feel depressed, isolated or experience cognitive decline. In 2015, a French scientific study found that hearing aids actually helped individuals with hearing loss stay mentally fit!
