Hearing for the Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time when we gather with loved ones to share good food, gifts and each other’s company. But all the hustle and bustle of the season can be stressful for people who experience hearing loss.

Hearing loss is very common, especially in older adults. It typically occurs gradually and affects approximately one-third of people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 75. While most hearing loss can’t be reversed, you can improve your hearing with the help of hearing aids.

Medications That May Contribute To Hearing Loss

It’s a nearly $500 billion industry and one country accounts for almost half of that consumption. That country would be the USA. The product is pharmaceuticals. Whether you’re buying medications over-the-counter or taking ones that your doctor prescribes, all medications carry risk. Unfortunately, many consumers don’t seem to pay attention to the risks. Side effects and risks may be listed in the paperwork, but people never think they’ll be the ones to experience side effects. That’s why emphasizing that some medications may increase your risk of hearing loss is so important.

Hearing Loss Linked to Accelerated Brain Tissue Loss

Although the brain becomes smaller with age, the shrinkage seems to be fast-tracked in older adults with hearing loss, according to the results of a study by researchers from Johns Hopkins and the National Institute on Aging. The findings add to a growing list of health consequences associated with hearing loss, including increased risk of dementia, falls, hospitalizations, and diminished physical and mental health overall.

Why You Should Wear Two Hearing Aids

If you are ready to confront your untreated hearing loss once and for all, you may have lots of questions about the process. One of the most frequent questions we get asked at Healthy Hearing is whether or not two hearing aids are better than one. The short answer: a resounding "yes."

Wearing two hearing aids makes just as much sense as wearing two shoes.

The holidays are a time for celebrating with family and friends. With large gatherings, laughter and conversation, noises tend to elevate, making it difficult for someone with a hearing loss to understand speech and follow conversations. Below are some simple hearing tips that can help you and your guests fully enjoy this holiday season!
