Losing your hearing can be a frustrating and embarrassing experience, but allowing it to go untreated may cause other problems.
A study of hearing-impaired adults, age 50 and older, showed that those with untreated hearing problems were more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and paranoia than people who sought treatment for the condition.
In addition to negatively affecting your relationships with loved ones, untreated hearing loss can lead to:
- Loneliness and social isolation.
- Poor job performance and decreased earning potential.
- Emotional and mental problems, including the possibility of dementia.
