Hearing Loss is on the Rise - Listen Up
High Point, NC — Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the U.S. and is on the rise with nearly 36 million Americans now reporting lost hearing. According to the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, about 25 percent of people in the United States between the ages of 55 and 64 have some degree of hearing loss. For those older than 65, the number of people with some hearing loss is almost 1 in 2.
Aging and chronic exposure to loud noises are significant factors that contribute to hearing loss. Other factors, such as excessive earwax, can temporarily prevent your ears from conducting sounds as well as they should.
