Hearing health and your overall health
Health officials have recently discovered the correlation between hearing loss, hearing health, and other diseases. If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to a number of mental health issues, including depression, loneliness, and anxiety. Losing one’s hearing can be difficult, and it can be a significant stressor on relationships, marriages, and work productivity. Many studies have shown that those who have even mild hearing loss may earn less and have a harder time in the workplace.
According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, 48 million Americans live with hearing loss.
While it can happen at any age, the majority of cases occur in adults over the age of 50, since age is often an underlying cause.
