Hearing loss Due To Technological Advances
Hearing health problems used to occur as part of the aging process. These days many people under 65 years of age are now suffering from hearing loss due to an increasingly noisy world and the many technological advances associated with it.
Devices such as the iPod, MP3 player, cell phone hands-free units, among others, put your hearing health at risk. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention explains how the number of people suffering from hearing damage has increased dramatically. What used to be 31.5 million hearing loss sufferers had increased to 36 million by the year 2006.
It is important to look for the signals that indicate you may suffer from loss of hearing. These signals include having difficulty understanding during a conversation. Contact your local audiologist such as Dr. Joseph Duran for an evaluation. He will be able to diagnose as well as treat your condition.
