SIGNS OF HEARING LOSS

The signs of hearing loss can be subtle and emerge slowly, or they can be significant and develop suddenly. Either way, there are common indications of hearing loss. At Advanced Audiology, we recommend being aware of the following signs:

Socially

  • Require frequent repetition
  • Have difficult following conversations with more than 2 people
  • Think others sound muffled or are mumbling
  • Difficulty hearing in noisy environments
  • Trouble hearing high pitched voices
  • Have your TV or radio turned to a high volume
  • Have ringing in your ears

Emotionally

  • Stressed or fatigued from straining to hear what others are saying
  • Frustrated with others because you can’t hear, can’t understand or misunderstand them
  • Nervous about trying to hear and understand
  • You are removing yourself from social situations you once enjoyed

Medically

  • Have a family history of hearing loss
  • Take medications that harm the hearing system (ototoxic drugs)
  • Have diabetes, heart, circulation or blood pressure issues
  • Exposed to very loud sounds over a long period of time or single explosive sound

If you have any questions or believe you may be experiencing hearing loss, please call us at our Dewitt or Haslett locations or email us at Info@HearingStartHere.com.

You are amazing. I don’t think you know how amazing you are. I’ve been to other offices, but your equipment is cutting edge and the way you explain things help you to understand.
