As we get older, it’s important to have regular check-ups.
While most people understand that visiting a dentist is important, why does a regular hearing assessment not get the attention it deserves?
There are many reasons – the stigma of hearing loss being one.
In this episode of Talk Radio, I’m discussing the importance of regular hearing assessments and why they are particularly important as you get older.
The Aging Process
Presbycusis is the gradual loss of hearing in both ears due to age. Typically, it starts around our 50s. Even if you don’t notice any immediate hearing loss, you should schedule a preliminary baseline check to prevent further issues.
With hearing loss still carrying an unfortunate stigma, it takes the average person 7-10 years before seeking advice from a medical professional.
At this stage, hearing loss may have deteriorated to the point that immediate treatment is required. If a simple hearing assessment was conducted many years ago, permanent issues could’ve been avoided.
