You’ve been fit as a fiddle your whole life. What are the odds you could actually have hearing loss? According to researchers, chances are really high.  Dr. Frank R. Lin, MD, Ph.D at Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health said in a recent article:

“…the prevalence of a clinically-significant hearing loss nearly doubles with each age decade such that nearly two- thirds of all adults over 70 years has a meaningful hearing loss.”

Hearing loss is a bit more ubiquitous than many of us may realize. As a result, we should periodically have our hearing evaluated by a hearing care professional to ensure early treatment if needed and to avoid the negative health consequences associated with untreated hearing loss. It has been linked to depression, feelings of loneliness and isolation, an increased risk of hypertension, and even an increased tendency for falling.

As the years go by, the odds are high that you may have some degree of hearing loss. Don’t roll the dice with your hearing health by ignoring the signs or procrastinating taking action. Schedule an appointment with a hearing care professional today!
