Signs of Age Related Hearing Loss
Any concern you may have with regards to your hearing should always be addressed with your healthcare provider, most commonly a family doctor as a first point of call.
Age related hearing loss will usually affect both ears to a similar degree, however because the process is gradual it is sometimes tricky to notice the difference. Overall, it is most difficult to hear high-frequency sounds, such as someone talking (particularly small children and women’s voices). As hearing loss develops it may become difficult to hear sounds at lower pitches.
Managing Hearing Loss
Hearing aids are the most common form of managing hearing loss. These microcomputers fit inside or outside the wearer’s ear and are assigned with amplifying external sound.
