If you answer "yes" to 3 or more, you could have a hearing problem.
According to the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), only one out of five people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually uses one. A hearing aid is an electronic, battery-operated device that makes sounds louder to the wearer. Hearing aids come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. Some hearing aids fit inside the outer ear or the ear canal, while others fit behind the ear.
Hearing aids can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars and while some health insurance companies may cover some of the cost associated with these devices, many do not. Our mission is to bring affordability to the hearing aid market so that those with mild to moderate hearing loss can afford the "luxury" of better hearing, and experience an improved quality of life.
Of course, a hearing aid is not the right answer for every hearing problem; but, if you do need a hearing aid, the correct hearing aid for you is a personal choice. The hearing aid that works well for you, feels comfortable to you and fits your lifestyle is always the right choice. Whether you are replacing your old hearing aid or are a first time hearing aid user, you should know that all hearing aids take time and patience to use successfully. Initially, you may experience some discomfort and/or the occlusion effect - the "plugged-up" sensation that causes a hearing aid user's voice to sound louder inside the head; most hearing aid user's find that over time, they do adjust to these initial irritants.

THE TYPES AND EFFECTS OF HEARING LOSS
People with hearing loss have trouble fully participating in everyday life. They may mistake words in a conversation, miss directions or warnings, or leave a ringing doorbell unanswered. Older people who can't hear well may become depressed or withdraw from others to avoid feeling frustrated or embarrassed about not understanding what is being said. They may become suspicious of relatives or friends who they believe "mumble" or "don't speak up" on purpose. Hearing loss can cause older people to become more isolated and can even put them in harm's way if they are unable to respond to warnings or hear sounds of impending danger. It is easy to mistakenly call older people confused, unresponsive, or uncooperative just because they don't hear well. Per the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), hearing loss comes in many forms. It can range from a mild loss in which a person misses certain high pitched sounds, such as the voices of women and children, to a total loss of hearing. It can be hereditary or it can result from disease, trauma, certain medications or exposure to loud noise, one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Approximately, 26 million adults between 20 and 69 years of age have hearing loss that may have been caused by exposure to noise at work or in leisure activities ("noise induced hearing loss"), which may be temporary or permanent, depending on the intensity and duration of the exposure. Conductive hearing loss caused by earwax build-up, fluid in the ear or a punctured eardrum can usually be restored by medical or surgical treatment. If the loss is due to use of medicines that damage the inner ear ("ototoxic drugs"), the damage may last only as long as you take the drug; other times it is permanent. Hearing loss as a result of damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve ("sensorineural hearing loss") is permanent.
"Unfortunately, only 20 percent of people who could benefit from a hearing aid actually wear one." - NIDCD
As one ages, changes in the inner ear, auditory nerve, middle ear or outer ear caused by aging, loud noise, heredity, head injury, infection, illness, certain prescription drugs, and/or circulation problems such as high blood pressure can contribute to presbycusis, another form of hearing loss commonly affecting people over age 50.
Hearing problems that are ignored or untreated can get worse. If you have a hearing problem, you can get help. See your doctor. Hearing aids, special training, certain medicines, and surgery are some of the choices that can help people with hearing problems.
