Hearing Loss is an issue we don’t hear nearly enough about
Hearing loss can be caused by a wide variety of factors. It can be caused by aging, continual loud noises, disease, or even hereditary factors. Needless to say, the loss of hearing can have a profound effect on a person's life.
Conversations with friends and family can be challenging for people with hearing loss. They may also struggle to understand medical advice, respond to warnings, and hear doorbells and alarms.
According to a recent study, over 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Hearing loss is more common in older adults, with research showing that one in every three people aged 65 to 74 suffers from it. In addition, hearing loss affects nearly half of those over the age of 75.
Understandably, many people may be reluctant to admit they have hearing problems. However, not treating your hearing loss on time is known to increase your risk of developing a number of health issues.
For example, hearing loss may increase the likelihood of dementia, falling, and depression. Experts believe that much of this is due to the social isolation caused by hearing loss. Some medical professionals contend that hearing loss raises the risk of heart attack, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke.
Signs of hearing loss
Hearing loss is common as people get older. However, the transition, like going gray, rarely occurs overnight. Because the onset of age-related hearing problems is often subtle, it is critical to pay attention to the early warning signs.
Here are some of the most common indications that a person may be suffering from hearing loss:
- Children's voices are muffled or unclear: When your cochlea, the inner ear organ that helps you hear, deteriorates with age, the cells that detect high-pitched sounds are usually the first to fail.
This can make it difficult to understand people with high-pitched voices, such as children and women. It's also why you might not hear your microwave beep or crickets chirp at sunset.
- Following conversations in noisy places is a big challenge: Background noise is generally low-pitched in malls and restaurants, whereas many letters in speech, such as "f" and "s," are high-pitched.
If you have trouble hearing high tones, the noise will be heard more clearly than the speech of those around you. Changes in how the brain processes sound as we age can also make ignoring background noise more difficult.
- Social events wear you out: When you can't hear all of the sounds of speech, your brain has to fill in the gaps in order for you to understand what others are saying.
That takes a lot of concentration, especially when multiple people are speaking at the same time. All of this effort may leave you exhausted after social gatherings.
If this sounds familiar to you, consult your doctor or an audiologist. Hearing aids fitted by a professional may alleviate the strain.
Hearing Aids Can Help Improve Your Overall Health
Hearing aids help reduce hearing fatigue. Thanks to the advances made in digital technology, modern hearing aids provide significantly greater clarity. Less strain and clearer hearing mean that patients can enjoy a better quality of life.
Hearing-impaired people who use hearing aids have higher self-esteem, a better self-image, and stronger communicative functioning.Hearing aids not only improve self-esteem and social life but they also help lessen the aforementioned health risks.
If you’ve been struggling with hearing problems, hearing aids can help solve many of your day-to-day problems. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy with Miracle-Ear hearing aids.
Benefits of Hearing Aids
- Increased level of comfort in listening environments: When first wearing hearing aids, sounds like clocks ticking, refrigerators, computer noise, and footsteps will appear abnormally loud. This is typical.
As your brain adjusts to hearing these soft sounds, your ability to tune out these insignificant sounds will improve.
- Less interference from moderate background noise: Even with hearing aids, loud background noise will make listening difficult. If this is the source of the majority of your hearing problems, selecting hearing aids with dual microphones is critical.
- Earmolds that fit snugly and comfortably: When wearing hearing aids and/or ear molds, it is normal to experience some occlusion effect (your voice sounds louder).

Why I Love Miracle-Ear
I love to help people hear better. I do my very best to make sure that everyone who walks through the door of my office gets the individualized care they deserve. I strive to improvement each patient's quality of life.
The adjustments he has made to my hearing aid during the last three visits have been very helpful. He always explains what he is doing. He always tells me to call him if I am having any problems. So far no problems.
Whenever I take my mom to Miracle Ear, we both have a great experience. The staff is kind and thoughtful and the service excellent. Mom's hearing aid is truly a miracle. She is very deaf without it, but with it we can once again talk things over.
I appreciate that we do not have to wait for be seen. We are always treated with respect and dignity. We especially appreciate that Sue's hearing aides can be serviced, even while she's a patient in long term care. Thank you Miracle-Ear!
