Multiple studies have been conducted on the relationship between untreated hearing loss with cognitive decline and dementia. For those of you who think that your hearing loss is not that bad and not even sure if you have a loss, let us just note that Dr. Frank Lin, MD, PhD has shown through his study at Johns Hopkins that even a mild loss leaves you at two times greater risk of developing dementia. If your loss is severe, your risk goes up to five times greater. So don’t delay. Visit us for an assessment of your hearing and make it part of your overall annual wellness activities. When you come for your appointment, plan to bring a loved one with you so we can assess how well you hear them. Overall, you spend more time with them than anyone, and your hearing loss affects them too.
If you or a loved one struggles to hear clearly, one of our clinics in the Treasure Valley (Boise, Meridian, Nampa) can help. Give us a call today at 208-519-4552.
