Hearing health has a direct effect on your overall health.
Hearing loss can occur for a number of reasons. Some causes can be natural and others would surprise you. There are also medical reasons for hearing loss like viruses, bacteria, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors and certain medicines. New studies have revealed some surprising causes as well, like diabetes or hypertension.
Hearing loss is more than an inconvenience; it can lead to depression, withdrawal, anger, loss of self-esteem, and overall unhappiness with life. There’s even some evidence it can affect your memory and other cognitive processes, as well your mobility. Because it can make communicating with your healthcare professional difficult, hearing loss can even jeopardize your overall health. (Aging & Health A to Z FACTS)
