Treating hearing loss

Hearing loss is much more common than you might think. It’s also highly treatable: the right hearing aid can improve your listening experience and give you back control over how you hear the world around you.

But what are the causes of hearing loss, and what are the signs that you might need some support?

Causes of hearing loss

Hearing loss can be caused by lots of different factors. These include:

  • Genetic medical conditions
  • Aging
  • Ear infections
  • Illness
  • Traumatic injury
  • Prolonged exposure to noise

Signs of hearing loss

  • Do you often ask others to repeat themselves?
  • Do you turn up the TV or radio louder than others prefer?
  • Do you find it difficult to understand conversations when there is background noise?
  • Does it seem as if others are mumbling when they speak to you?
  • Do you have difficulty following a group conversation?
  • Do you find it difficult to identify from which direction sounds are coming?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be experiencing hearing loss.
