Understanding Hearing Loss

 

Understanding Hearing Loss
Gradual hearing loss is a very common condition. Over time, the wear and tear on your ears from noise contributes to hearing loss by damaging your inner ear. Genetics and exposure to loud noises are the main factors that contribute to hearing loss. Other factors, such as earwax blockage, can prevent your ears from hearing sounds as well as they should. Unfortunately, you can't reverse hearing loss resulting from nerve damage. However, you don't have to live in a world of quieter, less distinct sounds.

Some warning signs that you might have a hearing loss include:

  • I have a problem hearing over the telephone
  • I have trouble following conversations when two or more people are talking
  • I have trouble understanding things on TV
  • I have to strain to understand conversations
  • I have trouble hearing conversations in a noisy background, such as a crowded room or restaurant
  • I misunderstand some words in a sentence and need to ask people to repeat themselves
  • I especially have trouble understanding the speech of women and children
  • Many people I talk to seem to mumble
  • I avoid social activities because I cannot hear well and fear I will reply improperly
  • Family members or friends have told me they think I may have a hearing loss


 If you have two or more symptoms listed above, please call Hearing 4 Life.

When we lose the ability to hear clearly, our lives become less vibrant. Every aspect of your life is linked to sound. Your friendships, family relationships, music, television, radio and work—all these things involve hearing and being heard. When you have hearing loss, you often become isolated from life and loved ones.

 The good news is that Hearing 4 Life helps you determine the extent of your hearing loss and which model will best serve your needs. We offer a free hearing test and a free non-working hearing aid sample for you to try out. Many insurance plans cover your hearing aids; however, it is important to have a baseline hearing audiogram in order to protect your coverage.
