Over the past few decades we, as a society, have come to realize that hearing loss is a major health issue, one that can lead to an array of various other health issues. As a result, untreated hearing loss can become the baseline for extremely increased healthcare costs.

This and other relevant factors have caused Dr. Frank R. Lin (Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) and his colleagues to work to connect the links between untreated hearing loss to other major health issues.

Over the past few years, we’ve learned that hearing loss can be linked to other health issues as well. In addition to hearing loss being frustrating to the person living with untreated hearing loss, recent research from John Hopkins concluded that hearing loss is also linked to walking and balance problems, falls and even Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
