Hearing Loss Threatens Mind, Life and Limb



Outline version: Outline - Read & annotate without distractions


Nice article on the effect of not getting your hearing loss treated early enough. Can affect probability for dementia, depression, and surprisingly cardiovascular problems. Also can affect balance problems which can result in injuries from falls.



I haven’t read the article yet but given my recent experience with my Phonak Marvels I wish I had taken the plunge sooner. I’m not depressed and I don’t think I have dementia (but then if I did I guess I wouldn’t know it) but I am really appreciating the improvement in my hearing and so is my wife and others I socialize with.


Interestingly, one of the reasons Oticon makes such good HAs is because Danish people figured this out years ago, and consequently, include HAs as part of their health care program, Oticon being a Danish company.
