“What is that annoying ringing in my ear(s)?!” or “Oh! I lost the hearing in my ear(s) again!” Chances are, if you have said either of these common phrases, you probably have a hearing loss of some kind.  In fact, medical research in the past few years has shown that people who have tinnitus also have some form of hearing loss.

Hearing loss has many differing causes and severities.  Some people living with hearing loss experience a small or narrow band of sound frequencies as the result of a minor injury to the inner ear. In these cases, the injury may not result in hearing loss, aside from the Tinnitus or ringing ears experienced. However, for the majority of Tinnitus cases, hearing loss is the underlying issue.

Any Audiologist or hearing health professional will tell a person experiencing hearing loss that it’s important to get hearing help. It’s as simple as that. From a subtle hearing loss to a severe hearing loss, maintaining good hearing health is the base you need to live a long, healthy brain life. There are so many statistics out there explaining the importance of treating hearing loss, especially in connection to long-term brain health. But, what about hearing aids? Do hearing aids really help improve brain health? The answer is yes.

It’s so easy for so many of us to get wrapped up in daily living that we simply put-off regular hearing healthcare visits. Actually, if we are really being honest, we procrastinate on a lot more than just hearing healthcare as we get older. The thing is, our hearing health is one of the most important, yet vastly under-rated, heath care areas we should be most concerned with maintaining as we age.

All kinds of things today produce noises that impact our hearing health. Loud noises happen every day and many of us just don’t notice. From cars and highways to crowded streets and constant background noise, our hearing allows us to amerce in our environment. As functioning humans working the daily grind, of course there will be increased noises. We’ve accepted these sounds as part of our everyday living. We do live in the age of ever-changing technology after all, but how much is too much noise for our own hearing health?

The realization that you could actually have a hearing loss is something none of us would be excited about. Sadly, our society has assigned a connotation that hearing loss means you are getting “old”. But really, hearing loss means you have been exposed to levels of sound throughout your life that has injured your hearing abilities. Hearing loss can happen in childhood, adolescence, adulthood and even in our senior years. Hearing loss knows no age, gender, ethnicity or occupation. And, with the right attitude and approach, hearing loss can be a condition that is controlled and manageable.

Fast forward from the 1950’s when hearing loss meant wearing a full-body hearing device, to 2018 when hearing aids offer Bluetooth capabilities, wireless technology, increased sound distinction features and so much more. Hearing loss is no longer something that holds us back!

Levels of hearing loss are likely never the same for two people. When you discover you are living with a hearing loss there are many details that result from a complete hearing exam that will give you an inside view of your exact hearing loss and how to confront it. The primary portion of a hearing test that will allow you to learn your exact hearing loss level is called an Audiogram. When reviewing your personal Audiogram with an Audiologist (AuD.) or a Nationally Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist (NBC-HIS) each of these professionals should sit and review your Audiogram results with you.
