Understanding the causes of hearing loss is a necessity if you want to keep your hearing healthy. Web MD has a great slideshow for the common causes of hearing loss here: https://www.webmd.com/healthy-aging/ss/slideshow-causes
You will notice the causes of severe hearing loss come down to a couple major points, what’s great is for a lot of these things there is something you can do:
For Noise Induced Hearing Loss – Wear ear plugs, turn the volume down. Noise induced hearing loss in most cases can be prevented just with these two things. You may think your ears are capable of toughing out your surround sound system at maximum volume however that sort of damage can really leave a lasting impact.
For Health/Age related Hearing Loss – The most important thing you can do here is take care of your body. Eat right, exercise, get good sleep. The healthier your body is, the better your ears will do at taking care of themselves. It can be such a simple thing to eat an apple rather than 6 donuts. Just make health conscious choices!
There is a lot that can be done to help your hearing stay healthier longer. Being proactive is key. If you find that you may have hearing loss make sure to see a hearing care professional right away.
