Do You Know the Signs of Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss typically develops gradually which means that it can remain undetected for years. Untreated hearing loss produces a range of symptoms that reduce a person’s ability to hear and process sound. Being able to recognize these symptoms is a useful way of identifying hearing health changes you could be experiencing. Common symptoms include: Tinnitus - a buzzing or ringing-like noise in one or both ears when no external sound is present. Sound is muffled, slurred, or distorted.
- Increasing the volume on the TV set, phone, or other electronic devices.
- Avoiding noisy restaurants, social gatherings, and spending time with others.
- Lip reading to help identify individual words and follow a conversation.
- Asking others to repeat themselves or speak louder so you can hear.
- Finding yourself saying “huh” or “what” in response to others.
- Struggling to keep up with a conversation.
These symptoms are among many which can be experienced mildly to more severe depending on the degree of hearing loss present. Your initial reaction may be to deny or downplay your experience of these symptoms because acknowledging changes to your health can be tough. This is understandable and normal, it can take some time to work through these changes and how you feel about them.
Finding a hearing professional that understands what you are going through is essential and incredibly useful. We understand that living with hearing loss can be challenging and are invested in alleviating these difficulties. It is never too late to seek treatment that can profoundly enhance the quality of your life.

Benefits of Treating Hearing Loss
There are countless benefits of treating hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss often results in people feeling disconnected and isolated from themselves, loved ones, and their community. By treating hearing loss, not only are symptoms alleviated but various aspects of daily life are enriched. Major benefits include:
- Being able to navigate conversations and social settings, and spending time with loved ones with greater ease and comfort.
- Not missing out on conversations or moments because you weren’t able to fully hear.
- Having more capacity to hear and communicate which is not as laborious as before.
- Strengthened relationships as you are able to have rich conversations and spend quality time with others.
- Improving overall health by strengthening cognitive functions, increasing spatial awareness, and boosting wellness.
- This reduces health risks associated with hearing loss like cognitive decline, accidental injuries, and depression.
Treating hearing loss strengthens communication, improves relationships, and enriches social life. These benefits help people live more satisfying and engaged lives. Hearing loss does not have to be a barrier, and with today’s treatment options, it isn’t. Today’s hearing aids are more technologically advanced and innovative than ever before.
