If you have a hearing loss, then it also affects your family and friends. Maybe the loss has been gradual, perhaps a little more sudden. Either way, it’s worth understanding what kind of hearing loss you’re living with. A hearing test can determine this, but meanwhile here are a few of the most common reasons for hearing loss.
This is caused by general wear and tear as we get older, and is apparent in about 1 in 4 adults. It’s caused by hair cell damage in the nerve (Cochlea) and tends to affect high frequency sounds, the beginnings and endings of words, female and children’s speech and certain types of music.
This problem occurs when the nerve is functioning correctly but the sound has trouble physically getting to it. A perforation could be to blame, or pressure build up in the middle ear. Sometimes a conductive hearing loss can be repaired with medical intervention, but that depends on the actual cause.
As the name suggests, this is combination of both Sensorineural and Conductive hearing loss. This type is certainly rarer and can sometimes require further investigation. No matter the cause of your Hearing Loss, by wearing a correctly prescribed and fitted Hearing System, it can help dramatically.
