Why You Should Seek Treatment for Hearing Loss

Woman with Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is usually seen as a sign of aging; something that happens, almost a standard part of life. For some people, it is therefore tempting to see hearing loss as somewhat normal and something they come to adjust to, rather than something they seek to resolve.

While it is understandable that people feel this way – especially if their hearing loss is only mild – it is, nevertheless, a concern. While hearing loss is indeed a standard part of aging, this fact does not mean that there is a need to live alongside it – hearing loss can and should, be treated.

Why is treating hearing loss so important?

Hearing loss is often seen as an absence; the absence of full hearing capabilities. It is therefore sometimes thought that if an individual can find workarounds to account for their hearing loss or make lifestyle choices to adapt, then they should be able to live as they always have.

Unfortunately, in reality, the loss of one of the five senses is far more than a simple absence that can be adjusted to. In time, untreated hearing loss can begin to cause significant issues – even if the individual believes they have successfully adapted to live with the condition.

Why is untreated hearing loss such a problem?

Over recent years, a number of studies have concluded that living with untreated hearing loss can significantly impact an individual’s life, including:

  • There is a strong link between untreated hearing loss and dementia. While hearing loss alone does not cause dementia, multiple studies have found that individuals living with untreated hearing loss are far more likely to develop dementia than those with standard hearing capabilities.
  • Individuals living with untreated hearing loss have also been found to be more prone to slips and falls, the consequences of which can be incredibly serious.

Furthermore, individuals with untreated hearing loss have also been found to:

  • Experience higher rates of depression, anxiety and stress
  • Struggle with socializing, which can lead to social isolation and loneliness
  • See a negative impact on relationships with adult children

Given the above, it is clear that untreated hearing loss cannot be managed or adjusted to, successfully. If an individual is experiencing hearing loss, treatment is certain to be the right route forward.

How should people with untreated hearing loss seek to move forward?

If you believe you are experiencing untreated hearing loss, then it is well worth scheduling an appointment with an audiologist. Your audiologist can then conduct a hearing test to gain further insight into the issues you are experiencing.

If you are diagnosed with hearing loss, hearing aids will – in almost every case – be the recommended treatment. Your audiologist will work with you, considering your individual preferences and circumstances, in order to find the right hearing aid for your specific needs.

As we have discussed, hearing loss can cause a number of issues that can significantly impact your quality of life. By visiting an audiologist and subsequently introducing hearings aids into your life, you can avoid the pitfalls of untreated hearing loss and be sure of a brighter, happier future.
