Hearing loss can mean many different things to many people. It can range from mild to profound, and it affects our audio experience in different ways, depending on whether the auditory nerve is affected. For those with conductive hearing loss, the cause can often be identified and treated, however for those with Sensorineural hearing loss, it’s generally a permanent loss of hearing that is experienced.
What causes hearing loss?
The modern world is incredibly loud, and that alone is increasing the prevalence of hearing loss, especially for those working in noisy industries. However, there are so many potential threats to our ears, whether that be through conductive hearing loss, Sensorineural hearing loss, or a combination of the two.
Aside from the usual suspects, such as noise exposure and aging, there are hearing loss diseases and many health conditions that can increase our vulnerability to hearing damage or loss. From viral and bacterial infections, through to genetic, autoimmune and neurological disorders, our hearing is more at risk than we realise, and sadly we don’t appreciate its true value until it’s affected.
According to the American Hearing Research Foundation, modern studies have revealed that hearing loss can also contribute to the onset of other serious health issues, such as dementia and similar cognitive impairments, diabetes and cardiovascular illness. Although they are currently unsure how or why this is the case, research is ongoing into this important area of medicine.
Do you struggle with hearing loss or hearing impairment?
Whether you have mild to moderate hearing loss or are severely deaf, losing the ability to communicate effectively with those around you can lead to depression, isolation and general loneliness. We are social beings at our core, so any barrier to our ability to connect with others can lead to a reduced quality of life.
According to the World Health Organization, by 2050, nearly 2.5 billion people will suffer from some form of hearing loss, with over 700 million of them having disabling or permanent hearing loss. Currently, more than 5% of the global population have disabling hearing loss, and 80% of them live in low to middle-income countries. As hearing devices are generally very expensive, they are out of reach for many people in these circumstances.
Thankfully in the US, there are various forms of sound amplification and hearing assistive devices available, however, insurance does not always fully cover hearing aids and it can still be a substantial expense to consider.
