Signs You Should Treat Your Hearing Loss
More than 48 million Americans have hearing loss, but only 20% seek help. If you are unsure your hearing loss warrants treatment, we have outlined five key signs that it is time to get a hearing test to start the journey toward better hearing.
1. You Find It Difficult to Follow Conversations
Those with hearing loss can usually get by with visual cues, such as lip reading and watching facial expressions—even during their favorite summer activities. If you find you are having a hard time following conversations when all you have to rely on is your sense of hearing, this is a sign you may have hearing loss.
2. You Constantly Think Others Are Mumbling
High-frequency sounds, including consonant sounds, are usually the first to go. This leaves you with mostly vowels, which can sound like someone is mumbling. If you were able to understand your loved ones until recently, this is a good indication that your hearing has worsened.
3. You Can’t Hear in a Crowded Environment
Carrying on a conversation at a crowded park, beach or farmers market can be challenging for anyone. Those with hearing loss have a hard time blocking out or ignoring unwanted noise. Being part of the conversation is hard when you are struggling to distinguish speech from background noise.
4. You Turn the Television Up too Loud
Following your favorite program can be difficult when important dialogue is mixed in with loud background noises and musical scores. While turning up the volume may seem like a good solution at the time, it is common for those with hearing loss to turn it up to an uncomfortably loud degree, hurting the ears of those they live with.
5. You Have a Hard Time Remembering
When you are struggling to hear what someone is saying, this can impact your short-term memory. A 2019 study found that almost 40% of adults with hearing loss over the age of 65 said they had memory loss, compared to only 5.2% of those without hearing loss.
