10 Reasons to Schedule a Hearing Screening

Posted by Darrell Evans, August 11, 2020

Attending yet another medical appointment might be the last thing you want to do, but it’s important to take care of all parts of your body. Since hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the United States, we all stand a decent chance of developing some form of it in our lifetimes.

Luckily, hearing loss is almost always very easily treated. And like many other health conditions, it can be easier to correct when you catch it early. If you’re still not convinced, check out these ten reasons to schedule a hearing screening in the near future:

  1. Most health professionals recommend it.
  2. Hearing loss, when left untreated, is associated with increased risk of dementia.
  3. By the same token, research shows that those who treat their hearing loss with a hearing aid reduce their risk of cognitive decline.
  4. Inability to hear well can increase your risk of falls, car crashes, and other accidents.
  5. Research has even linked hearing treatment to improved earning power, for those who are not yet retired or choose to work part time in retirement.
  6. Untreated hearing loss can contribute to social isolation and depression.
  7. Correcting a hearing problem will add to your quality of life, helping you to enjoy hobbies, travel, and just everyday activities much more.
  8. Hearing loss is often a red flag for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other serious health conditions.
  9. If your family or friends have been nagging you about your hearing, attending a hearing screen will get them off your back!
  10. A hearing screen is easy, painless, and requires less than an hour of your time.

If you’re not sure how to proceed with a hearing screen, ask your primary care physician for a recommendation. He or she can guide you to a reputable resource, so that you can feel confident about the results and treatment, if needed.
