    The Emergence of Hearing Loss in the Adult Patient

    Last updated 1 year ago

    According to an article on Audiology Online, some people with hearing loss are apprehensive to seek out professional help because they feel as if it is not a hindrance to their health but rather a part of growing older. 

    To view the entire article click here.

    In an international web-based study performed by Oticon, there was an “equal split between those who were experienced hearing aid users and those who suspected they had a hearing loss but had not formally done anything about it.”  However, from these results only 17% of those who suspected they had a hearing loss felt they actually needed medical attention.

    The purpose of this study is to see the patient’s perspective of hearing loss and what their needs are so the audiologist can better understand the needs of a patient and their reasons for waiting to seek medical aids.

    Getting a comprehensive hearing exam by a certified audiologist can increase the overall quality of life for those that are suffering from hearing loss. Let the expert audiologists at New York City’s Dunshaw Hearing Aid Centers provide you with the highest level of quality and professional service.

    Perform an Initial Hearing Loss Screening Test on Yourself with this App for iOS

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Hearing loss affects individuals in all age groups, not just the elderly. Testing for it early will increase your chances of successful treatment. If you are worried that you may be suffering from hearing loss, use the iPhone app uHear for a quick screening test.

    This app uses three easy tests to determine the range of your hearing: a hearing sensitivity test, a speech in noise test, and a questionnaire. Be sure to have a pair of headphones handy when using this app.

    You can use this app to self-diagnose your potential hearing loss, but be sure to make an appointment with an audiologist if you are experiencing difficulty hearing. If you live in New York City, contact Dunshaw Hearing Aid Centers at (888) 903-6717 or visit our website for information about our comprehensive audiological services.

    Hearing Loss Can Lead To Other Health Related Problems

    Last updated 1 year ago

    According to an article published by Men’s Health, without proper treatment hearing loss could possibly lead to other health related problems.  These problems can include:  dementia, withdrawal from social environments, and the inability to obtain information audibly that is important for cognition.

    Men’s Health gives some tips on keeping your hearing abilities up to par:

    • Have your hearing tested at least once after age 50, and consider screening every 2 years.
    • Seek an immediate evaluation for hearing loss that develops suddenly.
    • See your doctor if you’re losing some hearing to rule out medical causes (e.g. earwax build up).
    • Consult an audiologist to discuss hearing aids to further improve your hearing.
    • Make sure you have the best eyeglass prescription so you’re not missing any visual cues needed for communication.

    Overall, diagnosing a hearing loss problem in its early stages is ideal.  Getting a comprehensive hearing exam by a certified audiologist can increase the overall quality of life for those that are suffering from hearing loss.
