Hearing Loss & Prevention
Did you know that hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic health condition in the US? Approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Aging, noise exposure, medical conditions, and genetics all play a role in hearing loss.
Of individuals with hearing loss, only 20 percent seek treatment. Research has shown that untreated hearing loss is linked to fatigue, isolation, and a greater risk of cognitive decline. Treating hearing loss can be a simple solution to reduce these risks and recapture the sounds that you have been missing.
Hearing protection use is one way to prevent hearing loss attributed to noise exposure. The audiologist can explore solutions for hearing protection based on the type/s of noise you are exposed to. There are a variety of solutions ranging from non-custom earplugs to custom made devices.
