26 Oct Hearing Loss is NOT a sign of Old Age
One of the most common “myths” about hearing loss is that only “old people” suffer from it. In fact, the reverse is true. The majority (65%) of people with hearing loss are younger than 65 and six million people in the U.S. between 18 and 44 suffer from hearing loss (Better Hearing Institute website).
This myth is one of the reasons that people are sometimes resistant to admit they have trouble hearing. Somehow they think there is a stigma with having a hearing problem, or they can’t possibly have a hearing problem because they are not old. Sound familiar?
Not hearing well can affect your life in so many ways – causing miscommunication at work, under-performance in school, and reducing your enjoyment of socializing with family and friends. Don’t deny your hearing problem – do something about it.
Whatever your age, if you are starting to notice that you frequently ask people to repeat, or that you are trying to guess what people are saying to you – you should have your hearing tested.
