Health Risks Associated With Hearing Loss
- Cognitive Function, Dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease: Studies show that older people with hearing loss are more likely to develop dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. Research also shows that hearing loss among older adults appears to be associated with a faster rate of cognitive decline than in people without hearing loss. So what's the take away? Get your hearing tested and address any hearing loss.
- Depression and Anxiety: Research shows that hearing loss frequently co-exists with depression and/or anxiety. In fact, people with untreated hearing loss may be at an increased risk of depression. When left unaddressed, hearing loss can lead to isolation and other emotional conditions that can affect both qualify of life and mental health. But we also know that by treating hearing loss, the risk of associated depression and other mental health issues lessens significantly. So go ahead. Be happy. Get your hearing tested.
