Introduction

Hearing loss affects millions of Canadians as they age, through degenerative conditions, or through other issues and problems that they may face linked to genetics, acute workplace injuries and accidents, or other degenerative diseases relating to aging. Hearing is one of the senses human tend to use the most, and as such, hearing loss can be a significant problem that impacts the quality of life for many people as they cope with their lack of this important sense.

Hearing loss does not necessarily have a solution, as the eardrums typically cannot be repaired in a manner suitable to regain adequate hearing. However, there are ways to adequately maintain hearing even after hearing loss, and use tools like hearing aids to promote auditory consistency.

Causes

The causes of hearing loss are multi-varied and numerous, from aging and degenerative issues that wear down the eardrums over time, to specific and acute injuries and illnesses that make hearing loss happen suddenly and completely. For senior citizens, hearing loss happens over time as part of the aging process. People who are older will experience more significant hearing loss than others simply due to their age and the reaction their body has to the aging process.

For young people, hearing loss can come from degenerative conditions and issues, or from acute injuries that blow out the eardrums and cause serious health problems. These injuries can relate to the listening of loud music and noises in close quarters, the over-use of headphones and other technologies that exacerbate hearing loss, or sudden and unexpected loud noises that can permanently damage the eardrums and cause hearing loss in the long-term.

Symptoms

Symptoms of hearing loss are quite simple – the slow or sudden inability of a patient to hear. A lack of ability to hear is the main and obvious sign that hearing loss has taken place; however, there are other signs, too, that hearing loss may be coming on.

First, continued ringing in the ears is a sign that there may be some sort of hearing loss issue at hand, as the continued ringing may signify the eardrums being damaged in some way. Furthermore, the slight loss of hearing or ringing of the ears combined with continued headaches may signify impending hearing loss, as often times hearing loss exacerbates other cranial issues.

Knowing the symptoms of hearing loss can allow a patient to take the necessary steps to work through it, and, in turn, work around hearing loss problems by the use of hearing aids and other devices. Those who lose their hearing can expect to live full, complete lives even after the diagnosis thanks to modern medicine and technology that can amplify sound adequately for them permanently.
