Why should I do something if I have hearing loss?

There is a growing body of evidence supporting the importance of early identification and treatment of hearing Loss. Recent studies from Johns Hopkins Medical Centre (2014) indicate brain atrophy of the auditory system when hearing loss remains untreated for a significant amount of time. Studies point to the higher incidence of dementia in patients with untreated hearing loss. And finally, very recent findings from a long-term study in France support the reduced cognitive impairment when patients have hearing loss AND use hearing aids vs. those who don’t (2015).
