How to keep your hearing healthy well into old age
Hearing loss affects millions of people around the world. As we age, it’s important to take steps to protect our hearing health so that we can maintain our quality of life. There are a few simple things that you can do now to ensure your hearing is healthy well into old age. From avoiding loud noises to wearing ear protection, these tips can help you keep your hearing in top shape for years to come.
Protect your ears from loud noises:
One way you can prevent permanent damage from too much noise exposure is by getting the plugs out when it comes time for some cool weather at the beach. If you're too loud, you may find yourself with neighbors who don't want to continue living next to you and have the police show up to the sound trouble.
Avoid others who are loud - If you find yourself living with a noisy neighbor, try moving to another area on your own or with family and friends if possible. You could also take measures to block out the noise that comes from next door, such as by installing some soundproofing in your house or wearing earplugs when you need to be around that person.
Keep indoor spaces closed off - If all else fails, consider closing off any doors or rooms in your house that let in unwanted sounds. Sometimes, even getting rid of window coverings can help make a room quieter.
Avoid Loud Noises
Many people listen to music, watch movies and television, or go out on the town without wearing any protection. But as you’re getting older, these activities can damage your hearing over time. Sound travels in waves which causes different ear pressures behind our eardrums and inside our ear canals. When we don’t protect ourselves with earplugs or headphones during these activities, the pressure in our ears builds up which increases the risk of hearing loss or tinnitus related to high volume levels.
Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common problems in our society today. For example, construction sites can expose workers to dangerous levels of noise over some time, while some people may be exposed to hazardous levels at concerts or sports events. To protect your hearing, it’s important to avoid exposures that might cause noise-induced hearing loss like these. Additionally, if you work in a noisy environment, wearing ear protection can help to mitigate the risk of hearing damage. If you have any concerns about your noise-exposure level, schedule an appointment with your doctor for a hearing test.
How will noise-induced hearing loss affect me?
Noise-induced hearing loss can have many different effects on your life. For example, it could make it harder for you to protect yourself from environmental hazards like fire alarms or construction sites and prevent communication with others in noisy environments. It’s important to recognize the signs of noise-induced hearing loss so that any problems can be addressed as early as possible. If you are concerned about your hearing, make an appointment with your doctor. Together, they can create a plan that works for you.
What are the signs of noise-induced hearing loss?
People with noise-induced hearing loss may experience sound sensitivity, tinnitus, and/or ringing in the ears. Sound sensitivity is the increased feeling that sounds are too loud and the inability to focus on speech or background noises. Tinnitus is a sensation of ringing in the ears that occurs without an external cause such as a hearer’s head being hit or a gunshot. Ringing in the ears can also occur when there is difficulty hearing certain frequencies of sound due to nerve damage in your ear. Finally, an increased number of nerve fibers in the ear can lead to ringing.
