Did you know that untreated hearing loss has a connection with your overall health and well-being?

In fact, hearing loss is closely related to other health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Those with sleep apnea are also more likely to have hearing loss partly because the blood flow to the ear is restricted.

Because the ears are related to balance, those with hearing difficulties are more prone to accidents like slips and falls that can cause additional health issues.

As the ability to hear declines, so does the stimulation that the brain receives. In older Americans, hearing loss has been associated with cognitive decline, brain shrinkage, speech recognition, and dementia. Isolation is another effect of hearing loss, which can lead to difficulties with depression.

Thankfully, almost all hearing loss is treatable. With hearing aids, some conditions related to hearing loss can be prevented or treated appropriately!
