Symptoms and Assessment
Hearing loss tends to be gradual. Here are some questions that may indicate that you or a loved one has a loss:
- Have you been told that the TV is too loud for everyone except you?
- Do you have difficulty following conversations in large groups or noisy places, such as restaurants or family gatherings?
- Do you often ask others to repeat themselves, especially young children and women?
If you answered "yes" to any of these, you might have hearing loss. An Audibel hearing care professional can help you decide if hearing aids are a good option for you and find the best option for your hearing loss and lifestyle.
If you do have a hearing loss, you aren't alone. More than 31.5 million people in the United Stated currently suffer from varying degrees of hearing impairment. The good news is that most hearing losses can be effectively treated with digital hearing aids. The key to effective treatment is identifying hearing loss early.
