Did you know that hearing healthcare is an important piece of your overall health? Many dismiss the signs of hearing loss early on, associating it unfortunately with the stigma around aging. While hearing loss can certainly become more pronounced later in age, hearing loss in itself is NOT a sign of old age.
Additionally, ignoring the signs of hearing loss can create even greater problems for you. Brain scans show us that hearing loss may contribute to a faster rate of atrophy in the brain, and also contributes to social isolation1.
Within the last several years, many important studies have been conducted that link hearing loss to disabling conditions such as cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease, clinical depression, diabetes, frequent falling, heart disease and many others2.
When put into this perspective, hearing healthcare is much more than the ability to hear - it's a common ailment that has a tremendous impact on your overall health. While hearing loss in itself is not curable, it can be significantly improved with the help of an audiologist. In turn, not only will you be improving your quality of life, but also helping to prevent severe health conditions that could lead to injury or death.
Let's dig into this a little more:
Roughly 27 million Americans age 50 and older have hearing loss, yet only 1 in 7 uses a hearing aid. Don't let stigma or misconceptions hold you back from living your life to the fullest. Contact your doctor or an audiologist to discuss your options. If you're not ready for hearing aids, or would like to explore alternative with amplified devices, please call us at 800-726-0851.
