Mild hearing loss is actually the most prevalent kind. In fact, the World Health Organization has estimated that one in three adults over 65 in North America has mild hearing loss. But it's mild, and mild isn't so bad, right?
In the hearing care profession, we find that this is a great time of year to raise awareness about the connections between overall health and hearing health. People are often surprised to find out how just how linked hearing is to the rest of the body.
Do you know anyone with hearing loss? You may know one, you may know several. You may THINK you don’t know anyone at all who has a hearing problem. The fact is, hearing loss is a lot more common than many people think it is. Hearing loss comes on very gradually, so someone close to you could be in the process of compensating for a hearing loss even they haven’t noticed yet.
Being a human is complicated. There’s a lot about it to try and understand, especially when it comes to all the interrelated aspects of the human body. Here’s an interesting fact you may never have heard before: the state of your heart can affect the state of your hearing. We understand how that can sound a little fishy, but there have been 60-plus years of research into the heart/hearing connection.
