Have You Got Hearing Loss?
Hearing loss is a common problem that can affect anyone. Things such as your age, lifestyle and work life can all have an impact on your hearing.
Action on Hearing Loss estimate that ‘40%of people over 50 in the UK have some form of hearing loss’. Hearing loss can be gradual, caused by a lifetime of exposure to excessively loud noise. Which is why, it is important that people of all ages take care of their hearing. Using the correctly attenuated noise protection, whether it be at work, gigs or riding a motorcycle, will help to reduce the risk of noise induced hearing loss.
It is sometimes hard to tell if you’re losing your hearing, you may notice that you are constantly asking people to repeat themselves. Often other people may notice your hearing loss before you do.
Early signs of hearing loss include:
- Listening to the tv or radio at a higher volume that other people need
- Finding it hard to focus on conversations
- Muffling of speech or sounds
- Having to concentrate when listening
- Have a ringing in your ears
