About 27 million in the U.S are Hard of Hearing
A U.S hearing care company predicts that around 27 million Americans this year will suffer from untreated hearing loss. Although you may believe this number to be extremely high, the company takes in to account those with even mild hearing loss symptoms. Mild symptoms of hearing damage can lead to larger effects in the future if not treated properly. It is a fact that impaired hearing loss can lead to a negative impact in ones social life with friends, family and even the work environment. Hearing loss has been linked to depression; loneliness, reduced alertness, stress and can put personal safety and overall health at risk.
According to one study, hearing aids are only used by 25 percent of the 36 million Americans with hearing loss. One of the reasons many people who suffer from hearing loss do not seek help or aid is because they are in denial. It is important to get immediate help once you notice the symptoms associated with hearing loss. Visit your local hearing center and get your ears tested by a professional audiologist in Miami.
