5 Reasons To Get Your Hearing Checked

When it comes to our health, many adults will have our eyes checked on an annual basis, but not our hearing. When it comes to hearing loss, the earlier that changes to your hearing are noted, the more treatment options are available.

To help raise awareness of the impact of hearing loss around the world, the World Health Organization declares an annual “World Hearing Day.” This year, it falls on March 3rd, 2019, with the theme “Check Your Hearing.” We’re here to give you five reasons to get your hearing checked this World Hearing Day.

Hearing Loss: The Facts

Hearing loss is more common than you may think, yet many of us still delay getting our hearing checked. Here are a few facts about hearing loss that may surprise you:

  • The Hearing Loss Association of America estimates that approximately 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss.
  • The WHO estimates that 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65 worldwide live with hearing loss.
  • People wait an average of 7 years before seeking help.
  • Only 1 in 5 people who could benefit from a hearing aid wear one.
  • Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the U.S., after arthritis and heart disease.

5 Reasons To Get Your Hearing Checked

If you suspect that your hearing may have changed, now is the time to book in a hearing assessment. Here are our top 5 reasons to get your hearing checked:

  1. Untreated hearing loss may leave you feeling socially isolated. Difficulty hearing can make communicating difficult, leading to social withdrawal.
  2. Links have been made between hearing loss and the likelihood of developing dementia. The risk increases with the degree of lost hearing. Treatment can help reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
  3. Untreated hearing loss could increase your chances of an accident.
  4. Hearing loss could be a sign of an underlying condition, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease.
  5. It’s quick and painless. At Anderson Audiology, we’ll talk you through the entire process, and discuss your results and treatment options.
