Every once in a while I see a new patient who tells me that hearing loss is normal “for their age”.
That is like saying losing teeth is normal “for their age”. Hearing loss is never normal.
Yes, the older we get, the more likely it is that we will develop hearing loss. This does not mean that it is normal.
Hearing loss has been linked to all sorts of problems like dementia, depression, falling, isolation, reduced earning potential, and general poorer quality of life.
No matter what your age, if you have a hearing loss, you should treat it. Your life is too precious to ignore hearing loss.
