Common questions answered from our audiologists for healthier hearing

Many people experience hearing loss. It is sometimes due to the natural ageing process, but it sometimes occurs earlier on in life. It’s always important to get it checked out. That way, you can find out the reason for your hearing loss. Not only that, but there are many treatments available, and they can help you to enjoy a better quality of life, participate more in conversations and reduce the feelings of frustration when you cannot hear people properly. Untreated hearing loss could even lead to issues like depression. Often, a hearing aid is all you need to enjoy better hearing and a better quality of life.
There are many signs to look out for in yourself and others that could suggest you are experiencing hearing loss. These include not being able to clearly understand people in conversations, having difficulty following the conversation in group settings, struggling to hear the TV properly, getting frustrated and irritated, not understanding what people are saying unless you can see their faces, and struggling to talk properly on the phone. These are all potential signs that you should get a hearing test.
Hearing loss can be caused by different things, and there is no one treatment that is right for everyone. However, hearing aids are the standard treatment, and they are getting better all the time. There are many types of hearing aids including over-the-ear and in-the-ear models. There are even cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing aids. It’s important to get your hearing checked by an audiologist to work out which treatment is best for you.
There are many audiologists to choose from, so how do you find the best one? It’s always a good idea to look in your local area first, or at least somewhere you can travel to with ease because you will need to go back for follow-up appointments. Ideally, you want to choose an experienced audiologist with a good reputation, so start by asking around for recommendations. Ask any friends or relatives with hearing aids if they can recommend anyone. You can also read reviews online, and there are lots of reviews from patients to give you a good general idea of what you can expect. Call an audiologist and ask them a few questions to get a feel for whether they are right for you.
If you are struggling to hear properly in any setting, you could be suffering from hearing loss. That includes when watching TV, talking on the phone, in conversation with other people, at the theatre or anywhere else. Any situation where you find you are regularly having difficulty hearing and following conversation could be a sign that you have hearing loss, so it’s always a good idea to get it checked out by an audiologist to find out what’s up.
Audiologists are skilled healthcare professionals who specialise in diagnosing hearing loss and treating it for people of all ages. They provide hearing examinations, diagnose hearing problems and fit and adjust hearing aids. They also treat tinnitus and disorders related to balance. If you think you are experiencing hearing loss, book an appointment with an audiologist for a hearing test.
If you are visiting an audiologist for the first time, they will probably ask you some questions about your hearing loss and carry out some tests to check for any issues that may be affecting your hearing. Once they have finished the tests, they will discuss your results and answer your questions, and they will be able to recommend a course of treatment. If you need a hearing aid, they will help you choose a suitable model.
There are many types of hearing loss. These include sensorineural hearing loss, which is caused by damage to the inner ear or hearing nerve. This is the most common type of hearing loss, and it can be caused by ageing, loud noises and disease. Conductive hearing loss relates to a problem in the middle or outer ear, and it could be due to earwax. There is also mixed hearing loss, which is a combination of the above. This is why it is so important to get your hearing tested by an audiologist to find out what the best course of treatment will be.
Age-related hearing loss is very common. It is called presbycusis, and it is the loss of hearing due to ageing. Because it is often gradual, it can sometimes be hard to notice when you are experiencing this type of hearing loss. It usually affects the ability to hear more high-pitched sounds, like a phone ringing, while low-pitched sounds are often not affected.
