Hearing loss in America, in many cases, happens gradually over time. Often hearing loss happens so gradually that many people who are living with untreated hearing loss don’t know they are living with hearing loss. Hearing loss is unique for every person who experiences it. But no matter the severity or duration of hearing loss, there are signs.

We all know physical activity keeps your body healthy. So, it’s no surprise that physical activity and hearing health are related to each other as well. Your hearing health is related to many parts of your overall healthcare. As hearing loss professionals, we have come to realize that hearing loss is a major health issue, one that can lead to an array of various other health issues. And, in the new year, our media is overflowing with messages pushing us to get healthier and add exercise to our daily schedules.

Living with untreated hearing loss is a long and often, lonely battle. Even when trying to do simple daily tasks, such as listening for the coffee maker and microwave, hearing the doorbell and telephone ring, not to mention understanding telephone conversations, hearing loss can impact every corner of a person’s lifestyle and functionality.

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?

Most people have utilized their hearing for so long it has become second nature and not something many of us focus on daily. Especially today, many of us do pay attention to our health by getting annual physicals, trying to stay active and working on eating a healthy diet. Through all these efforts, hearing health and hearing loss tends to fall to the side of our overall attention to health.

Of course, back in the old days, many of us will remember raising our hands for the beep, wearing headphones getting our hearing tested as children. We may even remember brief hearing health screenings at annual physicals as we aged. But all too often, as we reach adulthood, many of us think we hear “just fine”, which can be so misleading.

In our current social state of fitness and total body health, many people forget about annual hearing health care check-ups. Sure, in grade school we all raised our hands with the headphones on in the nurse’s office, but as we age, regular hearing health care falls to the side. Perhaps this is part of the reason why hearing loss affects hundreds of millions of people across the globe.

One of the most important abilities we have as humans is our ability to communicate. This includes hearing, talking, seeing, smelling and touching. When we’re young, we certainly tend to take these abilities for granted. However, as we grow older, our abilities to communicate as well as we used to can change. When we notice these abilities begin to change, that’s when it’s time to take action.
