Thinking about getting hearing aids? Did you know they could help with more than just your hearing? Hearing aids have been found to improve brain function in people with hearing loss according to a recent study conducted by Jamie Desjardins, PHD, at the University of Texas El Paso (UTEP).
“After two weeks of hearing aid use, tests revealed an increase in percent scores for recalling words in working memory and selective attention tests, and the processing speed at which participants selected the correct response was faster. By the end of the study, participants had exhibited significant improvement in their cognitive function.”
If you have hearing loss and have ever found it difficult to remember things or focus, and you aren’t wearing hearing aids, then now may be the time to see a hearing care professional
“It is known that hearing loss, if left untreated, can lead to emotional and social consequences, reduced job performance, and diminished quality of life. Recently, research has shown that untreated hearing loss also can interfere with cognitive abilities because so much mental effort is diverted toward understanding speech.”
