How to Combat Hearing Loss

Aug 11, 2011 by

Younger people are losing their hearing ability at an alarming rate. We currently live in a very “Noisy” world, and old age is no longer the number one cause of hearing loss. Excessive noise has now become the top cause of hearing loss. It is estimated that 30 million people suffer from hearing loss problems in America, and over half of the people with hearing loss are under the age of 65.

On a recent THE TODAY SHOW episode, Matt Lauer takes a hearing test and discovers surprising results. In addition, Jim McDade, a man with hearing loss, shows his invisible hearing aids, and Dr. Shelley Borgia talks about how small today’s hearing aids are compared to older versions.

The Today Show video talks about Jim McDade, a man who developed hearing loss gradually from wearing headphones while sleeping. During the The Today Show, they talked about how hearing loss problems can affect not only your hearing ability, but your day to day life, such as your communication with others, and other parts of your social life. Worried about being judged, Jim McDade was timid about even the thought of wearing hearing aids. But he soon found that with the Lyric Invisible Hearing Aid, that would not be a big issue.
