It’s a new year and a great time to resolve to take care of your hearing health. As part of our routine health check ups we should have our hearing checked on a regular basis, just like our eyes and teeth. So, if you haven’t had your hearing checked in awhile now is the time to make an appointment.

Hearing loss in hiding

Have difficulty hearing in background noise but have been told your hearing is ‘normal?’ Recent research suggests noise can damage our hearing in such a way that we pass a hearing test, but have difficulty understanding speech when background noise is present, such as in a noisy restaurant.

Some hearing health professionals are referring to this as hidden hearing loss, because it doesn’t show up on a test, but has real world consequences. Standard hearing loss typically damages the cells in our inner ear causing us to have trouble picking up sounds. With hidden hearing loss it is thought that the cells themselves aren’t damaged, but the synapses or connections between the cells. When this happens sounds become harder to process, so it becomes difficult to pick out speech from background noise when both are present.

While this research is in its early stages, the researchers suggest hearing aids may help some people who are experiencing hidden hearing loss.

November is Diabetes Awareness Month

November is a good time for a reminder that diabetes can affect hearing by interfering with blood flow to the inner ear. As several studies have found a link between hearing loss and diabetes, it is a good idea to have your hearing regularly screened if you have the condition.

Prevent hearing loss by protecting your hearing now!

October is hearing protection awareness month. By now most of us are aware that we should protect our hearing when we are working around loud noise, such as with careers in construction or the Military. But, work isn’t the only place we can be exposed to damaging noise. We should also be thinking about hearing protection during loud leisure activities and working around the home.

Noise from concerts can reach damaging levels quickly and leave us with permanent hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Hearing protection should be used at concerts, sporting events, and activities where there is a risk of loud noise such as hunting, motor biking, and snowmobiling. Other sources of noise we should be aware of include common household items such as blenders, vacuum cleaners, lawn mowers, and power tools.

Foam plugs offer a quick and easy solution to most of these situations. Think of your lifestyle. If you are around noise often, custom hearing protection offers the most comfortable and effective protection.

For more information please feel free to contact Accurate Hearing at one of our three locations:
