Types of Hearing loss

Conductive: A problem with the outer or middle ear, conductive hearing loss is often medically or surgically treatable. A common example is chronic middle ear infection. 

Sensorineural: The most common type, sensorineural hearing loss is a problem with the inner ear or the nearing nerve. This is usually permanent and can be rehabilitated with amplification through hearing aids. 

Causes of Hearing Loss: 

  • Aging
  • Repeated exposure to loud noises
  • Infections
  • Injuries to the head or ears (including strokes)
  • Birth defects or genetics
  • Ototoxic reaction to drugs or cancer treatment such as antibiotics, chemotherapy, or radiation

Common Signs of Hearing Loss

You may…

  • Hear but not understand people
  • Have difficulty understanding the radio, television or public address systems
  • Need to watch a persons lips in order to understand
  • Find yourself asking people to repeat what they have said
  • Pretend to understand
  • May avoid people and isolate yourself
  • May find it emotionally and physically exhausting to communicate
  • Think that you are the only one who has these difficulties

Effects of Untreated Hearing Loss

Many people put off getting help for their hearing loss because they think it’s insignificant – something they can deal with by simply turning the TV louder or asking to repeat themselves. But research has linked untreated hearing loss to significant issues such as: 

  • Irritability, negativism and anger
  • Fatigue, tension, stress depression
  • Stress on relationships with family and friends
  • Avoidance or withdrawal from social situations
  • Social rejection and loneliness
  • Reduced alertness and increased risk to personal safety
  • Impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks
  • Reduced job performance and earning power
  • Diminished psychological and overall health
