What is the relationship between age & hearing loss?

Â

Many people assume that hearing loss is only for older people. This assumption is incorrect. Hearing loss can accrue at any age due to different causes. Babies are born with hearing loss due to a genetic problem or some kind of diseases that their mother acquired mostly within the first trimester of their pregnancy. There are many children in elementary & secondary school that have different degrees of hearing loss. I will mention a few statistics to clarify as how wide spread hearing loss is & it is not just for older people.

Â

  • One out of 10 Americans has a hearing loss.
