What will happen if I leave my Hearing Loss Untreated?

Untreated hearing loss has shown to have serious social, emotional, physiological and psychological effects on an individual. The single most devastating effect of untreated hearing loss is Auditory Deprivation.

Use it or Lose it!

When the auditory nerve and areas in the brain responsible for processing and interpreting of sound are deprived of sound, they atrophy or weaken. This is referred to as “Auditory deprivation”.

The single most important key to hearing better for longer is to keep the hearing mechanism active and not let it weaken. This is done through the use of hearing aids – even if the hearing loss is very minimal.

The earlier the hearing loss is treated, the better your outcome with hearing aids will be in the long term.

FAQs

A Couple of Common Questions

If you think you have a hearing loss and might benefit from a hearing aid, you can visit an Audiologist. An audiologist is a hearing health professional who identifies and measures hearing loss and will perform a hearing test to assess the type and degree of loss.

Hearing aids can’t cure hearing loss, just as glasses do not cure your farsightedness or nearsightedness, but it CAN help you hear better in those difficult to hearing situations.

Hearing aids are tools to manage your hearing difficulties and improve overall life quality.

Hearing with both ears (binaural) is better than hearing with only one ear, IF there is a hearing loss in both ears. Noise induced hearing loss and age related hearing loss tend to affect both ears.

 

Two hearing aids:

  • Help you to detect the direction of sound
  • Reduce the need for extra volume
  • Prevent deterioration of hearing
  • Help you to hear speech better within noise
  • Deliver higher satisfaction with hearing aids overall
  • Mask Tinnitus

Research has shown that hearing aids play a significant role in a patient’s overall psychological, emotional, social and physical well-being.


More specifically, treatment of hearing loss has shown to improve:

  • Emotional stability
  • Ease in communication
  • Easy communication in relationships
  • Social participation
  • Warmth and intimacy in family relationships
  • Sense of control over life
