Did you know approximately one out of every four Adult Canadians report some hearing loss? The risk of developing a hearing loss can vary. However, the most common causes of hearing loss are a result of aging, excessive noise exposure, and or injury.
The most compelling evidence is that due to the number of baby boomers in Canada, hearing loss is more widespread then ever and is increasing at an astounding rate. The unfortunate part is that nearly two-thirds of these individuals go untreated. As a result, the consequences of untreated age-related hearing loss have been linked to many significant health problems impacting the elderly, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
However, the good news is individuals can make healthy lifestyle changes to help prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia, and the best place to start is to take the initiative to treat hearing loss.
