Every hearing aid manufacturer has a recommended fitting guideline based on hearing loss, but it is only a starting point. One of the many processes we have in place to ensure our patients’ success with their investment in better hearing is called Live Speech Mapping. Live Speech Mapping is a fitting and verification method we use to ensure your hearing aids are programmed AND personalized to meet your unique hearing loss and individual needs.
Many people are aware that their hearing has deteriorated but are reluctant to seek help. Perhaps they don’t want to acknowledge the problem, are embarrassed by what they see as a weakness, or believe that they can “get by” without using a hearing aid. And, unfortunately, too many people wait years, even decades, to address the effects of hearing loss before getting treatment.
So, we know that when we wear earplugs or earmuffs when exposed to loud noises such as concerts, construction sites, and leaf blowers we are protecting our hearing from future damage, right? Kudos to you for protecting your hearing! But, did you know another way to help protect our hearing? FOOD!!!
