Hear the world – for life

Are you noticing that you cannot follow the dialogue in the theatre,you cannot feel any pleasure when listening to your favorite music in concerts or you can’t take part in conversations with the family at birthday parties?

With advancing age, from about 50th birthday, your hearing starts to diminish naturally. This is linked to the hair sensory cells in the inner ear, whose performance falls off over time. In addition to this, though, the auditory nerve and the auditory center are also affected by the aging process. The specialist term for this age-related hearing deterioration is presbycusis.

However, there are many other factors that can cause or accelerate a reduction in hearing.

Excessive exposure to noise, chronically increased blood sugar levels (diabetes) circulation disorders, infections, metabolic problems or accidents can also cause hearing problems, as can some medicines, alcohol and even smoking.

In turn, untreated hearing loss can conceal an increased risk of depression and dementia. From the age of 65, loss of hearing is generally associated with an increased illness ratio. Presumably, this also happens due to the deterioration in doctor-patient communication and the consequent effects on the quality of medical treatment. This has since been shown in a series of scientific studies.

Left untreated, a hearing difficulty will affect not just everyday life and the quality of affected person’s lives, but it also affects the development and progression of various geriatric illnesses.

Early recognition and treatment of a hearing difficulty is thus of central importance to your quality of life and your health.
