Did you know that by age 60 nearly two in three of us (that’s 64%) would hear much better with hearing aids?
Hearing loss can impact every aspect of your life – from your physical health and mental state to your relationships and your career, so it’s important to treat it as soon as possible.
Hearing loss can sneak up on you and, according to data published in the International Journal of Audiology, the best way to screen for deteriorating hearing is to simply ask yourself: “do I feel I have a hearing loss?”
The following questions could help shape your response.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there’s a chance you have some degree of hearing loss.
Seek immediate medical advice if your hearing loss is sudden, in one ear only, or accompanied by tinnitus, dizziness, or nausea.
It could be the sign of a serious underlying condition.
