SIGNS OF HEARING LOSS

For many people, hearing loss is a natural and gradual part of the aging process. Hearing loss can also be caused by genetic medical conditions, ear infections, illness, traumatic injury or prolonged expose to noise.

A Common

Problem

Hearing loss is one of the world’s most common health problems. It is also one of the most ignored problems, and this is unfortunate because hearing loss and its psychological side effects are highly treatable.

Hearing Without
Understanding

Hearing loss is not like listening to sounds with the volume turned down. Instead, you may notice that certain spoken sounds – like sh, th and f – are more difficult to hear than others. That’s why people with hearing loss often say they can hear people talking but can’t understand what is being said.

Signs of
Hearing Loss

If you suspect you are experiencing hearing loss, consider these questions:

  • Do you often ask others to repeat themselves?
  • Do you turn up the TV or radio louder than others prefer?
  • Is it particularly difficult to understand conversation when they speak to you?
  • Does it often seem as though others are mumbling when they speak to you?
  • Do you have difficulty following group conversations?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a hearing loss. It is extremely important that
you talk to a hearing healthcare professional, who can help you determine the type and degree of your hearing loss and what course of action you can take.

You Are
Not Alone

If you’re suffering with an untreated hearing loss, you may feel isolated and frustrated – like you’re missing out on life. Those around you may be feeling frustrated too. It’s important to know you’re not alone. Approximately 1 in 100 people experiences some degree of hearing loss. Happily, about 90% of these people can be helped with the use of hearing instruments.
