Hidden HearingCelebrities and famous people with hearing loss do not get any bigger than Will Jefferson ‘Bill’ Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States from 1993 to 2001.

After years of exposure to loud rock music and noise from hunting rifles and political rallies, former President Bill Clinton experienced difficulty hearing in noisier environments. During an annual physical in 1997, he was formally diagnosed with high frequency hearing loss. The most common form of hearing loss. Described as an inability to distinguish sounds in noisy, crowded situations with a lot of background chatter (such as restaurants, theatres or political rallies), it’s linked to aging and exposure to loud noise.

Clinton ignored his hearing difficulties for years until doctors diagnosed him with high-frequency hearing deficiency. Clinton now wears completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aids which helps him to hear in noisy environments.

He’s one of the lucky ones. Research shows that just 1 in 7 people with hearing loss use hearing aids and untreated hearing loss has also been associated with diabetes and poor quality of life.

Clinton and Ronald Reagan were fitted for hearing aids while in office, which provided a positive spin to the usually negatively-stereotyped hearing aids.

It is important to get your hearing tested if you have any concerns. Hidden Hearing provides professional hearing evaluation and hearing aids for all patients. If you have any questions about hearing loss contact Hidden Hearing on Freephone 1800 370 000.
