Hearing loss is a common problem which affects people of all ages, but primarily older adults. Nearly one third of those between the ages of 65 and 74 experience hearing loss, and that number increases to nearly 50% for those over the age of 75. Hearing loss can be caused by noises, disease, heredity and aging. You may also be experiencing ringing, buzzing or humming in the ears, which is called tinnitis. Tinnitis is a common problem which can be controlled so you can find relief from this annoying noise.
Those with hearing loss often have other related problems such as depression and frustration. And studies have shown that older adults with hearing loss are more likely to have dementia than those who have it treated.
