If you are worried that you might have hearing loss, you aren’t alone. Many people lose their hearing slowly as they age. It’s also possible to develop hearing loss due to noise. This can happen at any age. Start by asking your doctor for a hearing test. Depending on your test results, your doctor may refer you to a hearing specialist.
- Hearing loss can lead to dementia, so you should get your hearing tested so you don’t get brain loss.
- Hearing is only 10% ears and 90% brain so hearing loss leads to a lack in brain stimulation
- Hearing loss has an easy fix but many people decline treatment because they don’t want to be seen as old, which ends up leading so social isolation because they can’t hear and interact with people.
“Hearing loss is a treatable condition.”
