Often, the way a hearing aid appears to other people is enough to keep people with untreated hearing loss from working to find help for their hearing loss.  However, what many people don’t understand is that the hearing aid industry has come a very, very long way since your grandfather wore hearing aids. If you are dealing with hearing loss, the best thing you can do is visit one an Otolaryngologist/ENT and Audiologist for a proper medical evaluation.

If you have hearing loss and have used hearing aids in the past you already know not all hearing aids are created equally. Hearing aids are also only a portion of the complete hearing health process. Working with an experienced and professional Audiologist and Hearing Instrument Specialist to specifically program a hearing aid to an individual person’s specific hearing loss is what brings your hearing healthcare full circle.

As with many other health issues, hearing loss is commonly linked to various additional health conditions. It is only within the last several years that hearing loss has been linked to disabling health conditions. Hearing loss creates a sort of petri-dish that cultivates the progression of other health issues. Hearing loss supports social isolation and loneliness, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, such as serious cognitive decline connected to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, clinical depression, balance and fall issues among the older demographic, heart disease and more.

It’s not easy to admit to yourself that you could be living with untreated hearing loss. Taking the first step toward better hearing healthcare and working to treat hearing loss can take you down many different paths. It’s important to realize you will have emotions connected to your hearing loss and that is ok and perfectly normal. You are not alone.
