Over 36 million American adults have some degree of hearing loss. That is over 4 times the amount of people who live in New York City. The statistics are shocking and even more so knowing that over half of those 36 million Americans are under the age of 65. Hearing loss is an increasing health concern in this nation that is often preventable. Taking time to see an audiologist for regular hearing screenings and knowing the signs of hearing loss can protect your hearing. Tustin Hearing Center is encouraging you to make an appointment with an audiologist this October during National Audiology Awareness Month.
MYTH: There is nothing I can do about my tinnitus.
FACT: Many people complain to health care professionals about ringing or buzz-ing in their ears and are told that there is little they can do about it. “Tinnitus is just something you will have to deal with,” they say. “Try to ignore it.” But the fact is that there is a LOT you can do to lessen the effects of tinnitus.
Most recently, Signia launched a new hearing aid model called the Styletto.

What can YOU do? We encourage you to prompt your doctor to screen you for hearing loss, or simply asking about hearing loss would be helpful. It can be hard to admit you are experiencing hearing difficulty, or maybe you don’t even notice it, but it’s always a good idea to talk to you doctor about it. Your doctor may even appreciate hearing about your experiences and be eager to help!
