Dr. Sarah Lundstrom was recently featured on HealthMarkets.com discussing myths about hearing aids. Read the full article and hear Dr. Lundstrom’s thoughts via the link below.

“Roughly 15% of American adults (over 40 million people) report having a hard time hearing. While there’s no way to restore hearing, hearing aids can help you make the most of the hearing you do have. So why don’t more people use them?

Some people think hearing aids are too big or that they cost a lot of money. But these ideas are often tied to older models. Newer hearing aids have come a long way. And by boosting your hearing, they can help protect your brain while making life easier to navigate.”

Here’s what Dr. Lundstrom had to say on the topic:

“Hearing loss is not reversible. Once it begins, your hearing will likely continue to decline slowly over time, says Lundstrom.

But by using hearing aids, you may actually slow the rate of loss. ‘Think of your brain like a muscle,’ says Lundstrom. ‘Hearing aids are like a personal trainer designed to keep the auditory center of your brain at optimal fitness.’ 

‘The sooner you start to use hearing aids, the less loss you’ll have’, she says. That will improve your quality of life and reduce your risk of cognitive problems down the road.”
