Though hearing loss is frustrating, it is not life threatening and many people tend to ignore it. On average, hearing aid users wait 10 years before getting help for hearing loss. A recent research from Johns Hopkins reveals that hearing loss brings many health risks you may not think of:
- Communication with people around you becomes more difficult. It creates social isolation. You may not want to be with people as much, and when you are you may not engage in conversation as much. These factors may contribute to dementia, a loss of brain function.
- Hearing loss mutes important signals your ears pick up that help with balance. It also makes your brain work harder just to process sound. This subconscious multitasking may interfere with some of the mental processing needed to walk safely.
- Hearing loss is linked with walking problems, falls and even dementia, a loss of brain functions. Johns Hopkins expert Frank Lin, M.D., Ph.D, found that mild hearing loss doubled dementia risk. Moderate loss tripled risk, and people with a severe hearing impairment were five times more likely to develop dementia.
