Hearing loss is a prevalent physical condition that affects people of all ages.
It is most prevalent in the older population; one-third of adults 65 and over suffers from a loss of hearing, and that number increases to 2/3 by age 75. Younger individuals are not immune: noise-induced hearing loss is one of the leading causes of impairment.
Left untreated, hearing loss can impact your physical and mental health. Studies have linked loss of hearing to heart disease, diabetes, depression and dementia. The sooner the condition is discovered, the better your odds of treating it successfully.
