Are you finding it difficult to understand what people are saying to you in person or on the phone? If so, these could be warning signs of hearing loss. Other symptoms that may indicate a gradual loss of hearing include:

  • Although you hear people speaking, you have trouble understanding many of the words
  • You find yourself having to ask people to repeat themselves more frequently
  • You can no longer hear common household sounds such as a dripping faucet or oven timer
  • You have difficulty hearing in noisy environments such as restaurants or social gatherings
  • People complain that the volume on the radio or TV is too loud
  • You have trouble understanding conversation that is coming from behind you
  • People tell you that you speak too loudly
  • You find it increasingly difficult to understand the voices of women and children

A simple hearing test will let you know if you are, in fact, suffering from hearing loss, as well as, the type and severity of that loss. Beltone offers free, comprehensive hearing evaluations that will determine whether your hearing loss is temporary or permanent, along with available treatment options. Temporary hearing loss can be caused by infection, fluid or wax build–up, a punctured eardrum or Otosclerosis. In most cases, it's successfully treated by a physician. This type of hearing loss is typically known as Conductive Hearing Loss.

The most common type of hearing loss in adults is referred to as Sensorineural Hearing Loss. This type of loss is generally the result of prolonged exposure to noise, or simply part of the natural aging process. In the majority of cases it is successfully treated with hearing aids.

If hearing loss of any kind is left undiagnosed, it can lead to further damage to your hearing, which can significantly compromise your quality of life. Hearing assessments at Beltone are always free, and conducted by highly trained Hearing Care Practitioners using the latest in testing procedures and equipment. If hearing loss is indicated, your hearing care professional will be able to recommend which hearing instruments are best suited for your particular needs based on the type of hearing loss you have, your personal lifestyle, and your budget.
