Women who address hearing loss can improve physical, cognitive and social activities in their lives according to a research by the Better Hearing Institute (BHI), released in conjunction with National Women’s Health Week.
National Women’s Health week kicks off on Mother’s Day, May 12, 2013, and is coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health. May is also Better Hearing and Speech Month.
“People who experience hearing loss frequently suffer from other mental and physical health conditions” said David Smriga, M.A., president of AuDNet, Inc. “By recognizing the significance of hearing on overall health during National Women’s Health Week, women have the opportunity to directly impact their quality of life.”
Smriga strongly encourages all women to schedule an appointment with a licensed audiologist to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment for hearing impairment. With a proper diagnosis, hearing loss can be effectively managed and treated with hearing aids and other solutions. BHI statistics show eight of 10 hearing aid users cite positive changes in their lives directly to the use of hearing aids.
The BHI data also notes that correcting even mild hearing loss improves job performance, communications skills, personal relationships, and helps fight depression. Failure to take action on hearing loss can lead to other chronic diseases, as well as increased risk of falling, making hearing evaluations by a licensed audiologist an important part of annual medical examinations.
“When left untreated, hearing loss can lead to impaired memory, reduced alertness, fatigue, stress, and irritability,” Smriga noted. “Women have the opportunity to expose the secrets of hearing loss during National Women’s Health Week and throughout Better Hearing and Speech month.”
