The average person waits about 7 years from the time they notice difficulty hearing until they proactively seek out help. Why do they wait so long when our ears are so important in our daily lives? They not only connect us to those around us but they help notify us of our surroundings. Perhaps they don't want to be seen as 'old', having a 'weakness', or believe that they can hear 'good enough'. 

Research has shown hearing loss affects multiple facets of our daily lives. Many view hearing loss as more of an inconvenience, but it stems to many common problems. Human behavior is very social and suffering hearing loss imposes on our ability to stay connected to the world around us.  Research has even shown the correlation in hearing loss and cognitive decline such as dementia. This is because your brain loses needed stimulation because it's cut off from the world around. 

Studies have also linked untreated hearing loss to:

  • irritability, negativism and anger
  • fatigue, tension, stress and depression
  • avoidance or withdrawal from social situations
  • social rejection and loneliness
  • reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety
  • impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks
  • reduced job performance and earning power
  • diminished psychological and overall health

Hearing loss isn't limited to just old age. People of all ages experience hearing loss. That's why it's important to have your hearing tested . If you or a loved one struggle with hearing loss, come see us at Memphis Audiology! Call us at 901-310-5983 to schedule and appointment!

Hearing loss may not be what you think it is. It happens gradually over time. Hearing loss isn’t like listening to something with the volume turned down. Instead, it can be difficulty understanding certain high pitch sounds and consonants especially in noisy environments. We, at Memphis Audiology, are dedicated to providing you the best hearing services. Call today at 901-310-5983 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bell to learn if you may be living with hearing loss.

Dementia is Closely Related to Hearing Loss

 
Hearing Loss Dementia.png
 

Did you know for those older than 60 years, the risk of dementia is closely related to the severity of hearing loss?¹ Research Indicates a link between hearing loss and mild cognitive impairment, a condition that can be a precursor to Alzheimer's disease.² In 2017, an estimated 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease and every 66 seconds, someone develops the disease.³ Brain pathways need to be utilized or the pathway can close off. It's a classic case of, "use it or lose it". Fortunately, there's a potential upside. there's a possibility that treating hearing loss more aggressively could help stave off cognitive decline and dementia.⁴
Hearing loss can be difficult to self diagnose. The brain is able to overcome the gradual decline in hearing, similar to how the brain blocks out seeing your own nose all the time. An annual hearing evaluation can help discover if you have hearing loss, the type of hearing loss you may have, and how your hearing health and quality of life can be improved. Because, life is worth hearing! Call us at Memphis Audiology at 901-310-5983 to schedule your appointment!
