How treatment for hearing loss is essential to combat mental health

Good Things Utah

Hearing loss is serious! Dr. Enoch Cox, an audiologist with My Hearing Centers joined Nicea to talk about hearing loss and all the problems that come along with it.

One of the immediate effects of hearing loss is that individuals immediately become more isolated and tend to withdraw socially. Dr. Cox shared taht recent studies have shown that there is a direct correlation between anxiety, depression, dementia, stroke, heart attack, and even Alzheimer’s. One study even suggested that a minimal hearing loss left untreated could double the chance of a person getting dementia. Another study revealed that individuals were actually losing brain mass because they weren’t treating this condition.

With that said, hearing loss involves much more than just turning up the volume on the TV or asking people to repeat themselves. In fact, treating hearing loss is about improving the quality of an individual’s life, and in some cases, even lengthening that life.

Today, hearing aid technology is better than ever. If your hearing aid is two or three years old, you’ll be amazed at how much more they amplify the sound. In fact, today’s hearing aids allow users to hear better than someone with perfect hearing. Some hearing aids are even Bluetooth compatible and help others to hear conversations in noisy, crowded environments like restaurants.
