About hearing loss progression. Changes in our hearing don't typically occur across the board or all at once. Rather, hearing loss symptoms appear over time.

Hearing loss often starts as a simple misunderstanding of certain words. Over time you might start noticing more difficulty in noisy environments. Many times you might think people are simply mumbling. When hearing loss starts to become noticeable, many people get frustrated with others easily.

Many times in later stages of hearing loss, you start avoiding certain listening situations.

Untreated hearing loss has been studied and, according to The Gerontological Society of America, those with hearing loss who do not seek help have a lower quality of life.

The sooner we seek treatment for hearing problems, the more successful we'll be at slowing the negative social psychological cognitive, and health effects that come with it. So don't wait!
