Untreated hearing loss can affect your overall health. In our Wellness Talk, Fionnan Murray from Hidden Hearing Bray advised on the below:

Heart health: From the Better Hearing Institute

People with a hearing loss should get their cardiovascular health checked,
and people with cardiovascular disease should get their hearing checked
as studies have shown that a healthy cardiovascular system- a person’s
heart, arteries, and veins has a positive affect on hearing and vice versa.

Diabetes: From the Better Hearing Institute

Patients with diabetes are more than twice as likely as those without the
disease to have hearing loss, according to a recent National Institutes of
Health (NIH) study.

Dementia – From Johns Hopkins Medicine

Older people with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop
dementia over time than those who retain their hearing, a study by Johns
Hopkins and National Institute on Aging Research (USA), suggests.

Stroke – From The American Heart Association

The American Heart Association published a recap of an extensive study
that suggests there may be a relationship between sudden sensorineural
hearing loss, more easily called SSNHL, and stroke.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF UNTREATED HEARING LOSS IN OLDER PERSONS

Compared to older hearing-impaired people who use hearing aids, those
who do not use hearing aids are more likely to report:

  • sadness and depression
  • worry and anxiety
  • paranoia
  • less social activity
  • emotional turmoil
  • insecurity

On the other hand, older people whose hearing loss is treated often report
benefits that include:

  • better relationships with their families
  • better feelings about themselves
  • improved mental health
  • greater independence and security
