Don't Ignore the Problem
You might be embarrassed because of your hearing loss.
Don’t be. Hearing loss is much more common than you may think. In fact, approximately 36 million Americans have hearing loss, which is over one in ten. You’re not alone in your struggle with hearing loss and there are treatment options available that can improve both your hearing and quality of life.
Causes of Hearing Loss
Our ability to hear naturally degrades over time due to many factors. Most are common and unavoidable, but others are related to serious medical issues.
- Meniere’s disease
- Neurological Disorders
Hearing Loss Increases Risk of Disease
Hearing loss doesn’t just affect your quality of life; it increases your risk of developing serious medical conditions as well. A 2010 study demonstrated a link between hearing loss and heart disease and chronic kidney disease. Those with hearing loss are also more likely to develop devastating psychological disorders such as depression and Alzheimer’s. It’s not just about your hearing; it’s your life.
