Why You Should Get Your Hearing Checked
Being Proactive is best in preventing further hearing loss.
More can be done to improve your hearing and quality of life with early detection. If you can detect a hearing loss problem sooner than later, you have a better chance of preventing it from getting worse. We can recommend some changes for your everyday life to protect you hearing in the future.
Getting your hearing tested can spot other health problems as well.
Research shows that hearing loss can be correlated to several other health conditions within the body, such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, eye health, and much more. We want your body healthy as a whole and we wouldn't want these underlying conditions to go unnoticed.
Hearing loss could be affecting your relationships and making it difficult to enjoy social settings.
Have you found yourself in conversation constantly asking “What?” Or felt left out because you have opted to seclude yourself from conversations. Hearing loss can make social settings unpleasant and maybe you have found yourself avoiding them altogether. We don’t want your hearing to limit you!
Ignoring Hearing Loss can be damaging to your health.
When you go years with untreated hearing loss, you increase your risk of dementia, depression, and physical harm (such as falling). This may sound strange, but if you are experiencing hearing loss you are more opt to fall, especially if you are older. The most troubling effect of hearing loss though is the cognitive decline many people experience. A new study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine suggests that older people with compromised hearing are at risk of developing cognitive deficits sooner than those whose hearing is intact. One way to protect your mental sharpness as you age is by monitoring your hearing health.
