Hearing loss is not always age related

It’s a natural effect of aging, that unfortunately our hearing is prone to decline. But hearing loss can also come about as a result of other factors like exposure to loud noise, trauma, illness and infections, allergies, side-effects of medication, genetics and wear and tear inside the ear.

Hearing loss is often a subject that people don’t like to admit to or talk about. Consequently, many people suffer in silence and miss out on the fun of leading a fully engaged and interactive social and business life, as they grow older.

We’re keen to break down the barriers and taboos surrounding hearing loss to help you achieve a better quality of life. In the same way that we regularly have our eyes and teeth checked, having a hearing test is just as important. After all, we wear glasses to help improve our eyesight – and even as a fashion accessory – without any embarrassment, so why not the same for our hearing?

Are you sure you’re not suffering from hearing loss?

Many people also don’t know they actually have hearing loss as the symptoms aren’t always as obvious as being deaf. Lots of people have milder forms of hearing loss and are simply unaware of the problem and how it’s affecting their lives.

  • Over 40% of people over 50 in the UK have a hearing loss
  • 71% of people over the age of 70 in the UK have a hearing loss

Yet only about 40% of people who need hearing aids have them and people who have symptoms of early hearing loss will wait, on average, a decade from onset until they get their hearing tested. (As reported by industry-leading non-profit Action for Hearing Loss).

Finding out you’re experiencing hearing loss and receiving treatment can rarely reverse damage, but it can:

  • Make your life easier
  • Slow down your hearing loss by knowing and addressing the root cause
  • Help your mental sharpness, as hearing loss can impair the brain’s ability to process sound and recognise speech
  • Help the onset of dementia, according to recent studies.

5 signs you should have a hearing test:

  1. If you’re always asking people to repeat themselves or you can’t clearly hear what they’re saying because they’re mumbling.
  2. If you have persistent ringing in your ears – 15% of the world’s population suffer from tinnitus.
  3. If you’re unable to hold a conversation in noisy places.
  4. If you’re always turning up the TV volume.
  5. If you’re missing sounds you shouldn’t, like cars approaching or the doorbell, or you don’t know where the sounds are coming from.

Hearing tests are painless and non-invasive. What to expect when you have a hearing test?
