MYTH: HEARING LOSS IS ONLY FOR OLDER PEOPLE

Traditionally, hearing loss is thought to be predominantly caused by age. In fact, seventy percent of individuals over the age of 70 have some degree of hearing loss! However, the more we research hearing and its causes, the more we find age is just one of many factors.

Certain health disorders, especially heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, can have a bigger impact on hearing than age. Overall health and hearing comorbidities (illnesses seen in conjunction with other disorders) can be a predictor of your likelihood for having hearing loss.

In the same way, hearing loss can be an early warning or symptom of some health concerns. Certain configurations or types of hearing loss may help identify additional health concerns that are not yet diagnosed. Having your hearing tested early and regularly is a great way to keep you healthy as you age.
