How can we help you out from hearing loss ?

Imagine being cut off from communication with your loved ones. Conversations happen around you but you can’t really participate. It becomes easier to stay at home because it is too frustrating to try and hear what your friends are saying. Hearing loss is a common problem caused by noise, aging, disease, and heredity. As you age, you experience a number of changes in the way your body functions. Hearing Loss might be one of these changes. Age-related hearing loss (Presbycusis) is the loss of hearing that gradually occurs in most of us as we grow older. Almost 1 in 2 adults over age 65 experience some degree of hearing loss. Although age-related hearing loss is not a life-threatening condition, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life, if left untreated.

Problems that stem from hearing loss in the elderly include:

  • Depression

  • Withdrawal from social life

  • Loneliness

  • Anger

  • Decreased personal safety

  • Cognitive decline

  • Poor health

Generally, Hearing loss is caused by physical changes in the ear, the auditory nerve, or in the ability of your brain to process sound. But age related hearing loss is generally caused due to:

  • Changes in the structures of the inner ear

  • Changes in blood flow to the ear

  • Diabetes

  • Use of certain medications

  • Family history of hearing loss
