The idea that you can “hear” words but just can’t make out what’s being said
Trouble discerning certain sounds
Needing to see people to understand what’s being said
Trouble hearing a speaker in loud, crowded situations
If you have cardiovascular disease or are at risk for developing cardiovascular disease, your hearing may also be at risk. Research suggests that auditory systems decline as cardiovascular health declines. On the contrary, improving cardiovascular health seems to slow the hearing decline.
It’s easy to take our sense of hearing for granted. We just expect to always hear well. Unfortunately, once your hearing is damaged, it never returns to the same level. The best way to maintain a healthy sense of hearing is to get regular evaluations and opt for treatment if the audiologist recommends it.
You already know what you can do to improve your cardiovascular health. Here’s what you can do to preserve your hearing health:
Schedule an appointment with Audiologist, Dr. Scarlet M. Aviles to have a hearing evaluation.
You can reach her at: (808) 200-5633
Know the signs of hearing loss.
Avoid exposure to extremely loud venues.
Wear earplugs if you cannot avoid loud situations.
