The importance of hearing to our quality of life and the sheer volume of people who have hearing loss (it’s the third most chronic condition affecting adults) have made hearing loss a topic of regular research and scientific studies.
We’ve compiled the findings of several different studies conducted over the years. Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine — writing about a study comparing brain changes in adults with impaired hearing — noted their findings “add to a growing list of health consequences associated with hearing loss, including increased risk of dementia, falls, hospitalizations, and diminished physical and mental health overall.”
But simply treating hearing loss can go a long way towards minimizing these increased risks! Hearing aids may improve balance, and more.
