Hearing Loss

As of 2009, it is estimated that 36 million Americans have hearing loss.  Although hearing loss is often associated with aging, hearing can be present at any age.  Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the United States. Untreated hearing loss can affect your ability to understand speech which negatively effects your social and emotional well-being. Some signs you may have hearing loss include:

  • Difficulty understanding people in noisy environments
  • People seem to “mumble”
  • Family and friends often have to repeat themselves when talking to you
  • You have trouble hearing people when they are not facing you or are in another room
