How about 7 reasons? HealthyHearing.com has a great list of 7 reasons why you shouldn’t postpone a hearing evaluation. Here are a few of the reasons:
- Untreated hearing loss weakens the brain – When you have to strain to hear, it actually forces your brain to focus resources away from your other senses. This strain can put unnecessary stress on the brain.
- Dementia and other mental disorders – Recent studies are showing that when your brain is working so hard to hearit can open you up to a higher risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
- Risk of falling – We talked about this a few weeks ago. Your hearing is linked to your vestibular system and as your hearing goes, your risk of falling dramatically increases.
Postponing taking action on your hearing health has been proven to negatively affect all of these things. If you start noticing hearing loss, take action immediately.
