Ken Roper’s Hearing Aid Review
Getting Your Hearing Checked Annually Should Be Part Of Your Wellness Check
Just because we don’t want to admit that we are having trouble with our hearing doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening. People of all ages can experience hearing loss and changes to their hearing. Whether it be from loud concerts, ball games, or work environments, we all suffer from noise pollution in one sense or another. Consider this:
- 12.5% of American children between the ages of 6 and 19 have had their hearing permanently damaged from overexposure to loud noise
- About 14% of American adults between the ages of 45 and 64 have some type of hearing loss
- Also, 30-40% American adults over the age of 65 have some type of hearing loss
- In addition, 50% of American adults over the age of 75 have some type of hearing loss
Hearing loss is not something we should take lightly. In most cases, the longer you wait to see a hearing care professional, the more difficulty you will have when you do get help. It’s also been linked to many different health concerns. Things like heart disease, dementia, depression, sleep apnea, and brain shrinkage, to name a few.
How Hearing Loss Affects Earning Potential
Untreated hearing loss can decrease your earning power and create tensions in your workplace relationships. Your personal relationships may also suffer if hearing loss goes untreated. Communication with your friends and family will become strained and this can lead to frustration and aggravation. However, when we take action to address hearing loss it makes all the difference in the world. The use of hearing aids has been shown to improve cognitive function, combat personal and professional setbacks, and improve your overall quality of life.
