8 Signs That You Need Your Hearing Checked

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jul 12, 2019 3:05:06 PM

Hearing loss is a very common problem affecting nearly 40 million people of all ages and when left untreated, it can have a substantial impact on a person's overall well being and health.

The ability to hear contributes to personal safety, social and emotional well being, independence and more. In fact, studies have shown that untreated hearing loss has been linked to depression, stress, memory issues along with other social and medical conditions.

There are many factors that can cause or contribute to hearing loss and they range from aging, genetics, medications, medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes to exposure to loud noises especially for construction workers, police officers, firefighters, armed forces and musicians. And since hearing changes often happen slowly, you may be experiencing hearing loss without even noticing yourself.

Because hearing loss is a gradual process, it’s always a good idea to check your hearing even before you notice any problems to track any changes and take precautions before it becomes a problem.
