The Importance of Hearing Tests
A hearing test should be a part of everyone’s overall health and wellness plan. Just like visiting your doctor or dentist, we should also get into a routine of monitoring our hearing health regularly. Having a hearing test every year is strongly encouraged, especially for those over 55, someone with a family history of hearing loss, folks who work in loud environments or people with medical conditions such as Diabetes, Kidney Disease or Cardiovascular issues. However, as we get older, we naturally become more susceptible to hearing loss because of changes to the structures of our auditory system. A hearing test performed by a certified Audiologist will determine if you have hearing loss, the degree of hearing loss as well as what type of hearing loss is present.
