How is Age Related Hearing Loss Diagnosed?
It is important to ensure that you are being well looked after and being proactive can help you to live a longer, healthier and happier life. There are many ailments and conditions that can affect the human body, which can be properly treated if caught early enough. Going to see a doctor or medical professional on a regular basis will give you the best opportunity of having any problems resolved at an earlier basis. Your hearing falls into this category and you should have an annual check if you are over 60/believe you have a hearing/know you have hearing loss.
If you start to become aware of diminished hearing, it is important for you to see a GP or hearing professional as soon as possible. They will be able to carry out a number of simple tests and if they suspect that you are suffering from hearing loss, they will give you the appropriate advice, be that a hearing solution or maybe a referral to an ENT specialist. There is absolutely nothing to worry about and if you do have hearing issues, a hearing specialist will provide you with the best support.
