Your hearing is a primary sense channel that connects you to the world. Doing something about your hearing loss can have effects that are more far-reaching than you might expect.
All these things add up to helping you be more relaxed, more confident, more able to take pleasure in what life has to offer you each day. Imagine what happens when a light is turned on in a dimly-lit room. Indistinct blurs are revealed as objects of beauty, tools, or as cherished mementos. The effect is no less dramatic when your hearing is restored.
Would it surprise you to learn that not correcting your hearing problems can cost you as much as $30,000 a year in reduced earnings? In its research, the Better Hearing Institute found that this applied even to those with mild hearing loss.
Dementia and cognitive decline
Untreated hearing loss can increase the chance that you could develop dementia. Over time, your hearing loss can begin to weaken the parts of your brain that are responsible for understanding speech, compounding your difficulties. Fortunately, correcting your hearing can slow this process.
Are you bothered by constant ringing in your ears? In addition to being irritating, this can contribute to stress. A hearing aid can address this problem.
