If you’re like most people with mild to moderate hearing loss, you may not even know you have a problem. Or you may suspect you have some hearing loss, but don’t think it’s severe enough for a hearing test. This perception is very common.
According to the Better Hearing Institute, only 23 percent of Americans with hearing loss are actually doing something about it. Yet 95 percent of them would benefit from the use of hearing aids.† People with hearing loss delay getting help for a variety of reasons — embarrassment, denial, financial concerns and more — but the long-term effects of that decision can be costly.
So how do you know if you should get your hearing checked? Here are the early warning signs of hearing loss:
•Difficulty hearing normal conversations in noisy environments
•The perception that others are mumbling
•Frequently asking others to speak up
•Difficulty understanding phone conversations
•Straining to hear at the movies or in theaters
•Complaints from others that you're listening to TVs or radios too loudly
•Feelings of embarrassment in social situations
•Struggling to understand verbal information at work
What happens if I don't get my hearing checked?
Americans who suffer from hearing loss report decreased quality in many areas of their lives. Here are some of the reported impacts:
•Social isolations and depression
•Reduced communication and intimacy with loved ones
•Sense of losing control over your life
•Decreased earning power
•Perception by others of mental impairment
•Increased feelings of anger, frustration and embarrassment
•Development of paranoia, anxiety and social phobias
•Permanent speech-memory loss due to auditory deprivation
