Hearing Loss

Are you worried about your hearing health? Maybe you haven’t noticed the small changes to your hearing health over the last few months, but your family may have raised concerns that you’re not hearing as well as you used to. You might not realize how much your hearing has changed, since daily changes to your hearing health can be quite small, but if your loved ones have noticed that you can’t hear clearly, it’s time to take action on your hearing health.

Signs of Hearing Loss

Think about the last time you heard birds chirping outside the window. You might not think about it often, or realize you’ve lost these sounds, but high register sounds are the first you’ll lose with hearing loss, and that’s why you don’t hear the birds, miss the sound of the doorbell, or struggle to understand the stories your grandkids tell you about their day. Do you ignore the phone because you can’t follow the conversation? Do you often ask people to repeat themselves, or struggle to follow conversations when in a place with a lot of background noise? These are all signs of hearing loss, and a reminder that you need to look after your hearing health.

Types of Hearing Loss

There are three main types of hearing loss that could be affecting you, and the first step to treating your hearing loss is finding out what kind of hearing loss you have. Hearing loss can range anywhere from mild to profound, and it will worsen over time if left untreated.

How to Treat Hearing Loss

Do you suspect you may have a hearing loss? Treating hearing loss as soon as you realize you’re struggling to hear is important for your hearing health, as well as your overall health and wellbeing. Treating hearing loss will help the cells in your ear hear, and will keep your brain active. If you have conductive hearing loss, removing the blockage will protect the cells in the ear, and dramatically increase your quality of life. Most hearing loss is treated with a quality pair of hearing aids that are programmed to match your unique hearing needs and lifestyle.
