Signs and Symptoms
Hearing loss is popularly associated with advanced age. Though your chances of hearing loss do increase with age, a surprisingly high percentage of people with hearing loss are much younger than you’d think. Traffic, machinery, music, and TV all contribute to noisy environments that can cause hearing loss – at any age. Hearing loss is not uncommon. More than 500 million people worldwide suffer from some degree of hearing loss. You might be one of them. If you are, getting hearing aids can help you regain your hearing so you can live the life you’re used to.
Signs and symptoms
Have the birds stopped singing? Everyday sounds are part of life’s most meaningful experiences. Are you having difficulty hearing the sound of a purring cat? Or the crisp crunch of snow under your boot on a cold winter morning? Or birds singing in your garden? If so, there’s a chance you have hearing loss and may need hearing aids.
Hearing loss usually develops gradually
Hearing loss can develop so gradually that you don’t notice the loss of these subtle everyday sounds. Before you know it, you could start missing the important sounds in your everyday life, such as the voices of loved ones. Of course, you may not think your hearing loss is severe enough to worry about. But however mild your hearing loss might be, you’ll find that your life will greatly improve by doing something about the problem by for example getting hearing aids.
