True Story... Hearing Loss & Dementia, is there a link? First of all not all hearing loss is because of the aging process. Of the approximately 40 million Americans with hearing loss, half are under the age of 65. We are seeing many more patients in our office in their 40’s and 50’s. This should grab our attention considering the results of a few recent studies centered around hearing loss and dementia. (Reference article “Update on Dementia and Hearing Loss” in the January 2014 edition of the Hearing Review magazine) Jeffrey Johnston, BC-HIS Vice President of the Wisconsin There is no doubt that as we age, things start to wear Alliance of Hearing Professionals out. As one of my hearing aid patients put it “getting old is not for sissies”. However there have been recent studies that suggest that those with untreated hearing loss run a greater risk of developing dementia. Some of the side effects of hearing loss are anxiety, depression, isolation and loneliness. If we can avoid some of these side effects through better hearing we can improve quality of life. I am not a doctor, nor am I saying that wearing hearing aids will prevent the onset of dementia. Much more research and continued studies need to be conducted before we “claim” anything. However the results thus far look promising. I have had numerous patients in my 22+ years of helping people hear better, tell me how much more “connected” they feel to the people around them because of better hearing.
