Did you know? In 2018, an estimated 5.7 million American of all ages had Alzheimer’s disease, and that every sixty seconds someone new develops the disease. For those over 60 years old, the risk of dementia is closely related to the severity of your hearing loss.
How does hearing loss relate to dementia?
There is intensive study on this vital topic and epidemic disease. Current research indicates that hearing difficulty, social isolation, and shared brain function pathways may require that more cognitive resources be applied to hearing. When that happens, it reduces the availability of those cognitive resources for working memory.
How can we learn more about how treating hearing loss relates to dementia risk?
The best answer is to get expert advice on your personal situation and medical history. Your trusted hearing care Doctor will explain how a family history of dementia or hearing loss may pose an increased risk for you or your loved ones. By making well-informed decisions, you may be able to delay or prevent the onset of dementia.
