Research into people with hearing loss has found that those who wear hearing aids feel less physically and mentally exhausted in the evenings than those who don’t, according to information published in The Hearing Review March 2013.
Questions were asked within surveys by EuroTrak and JapanTrak conducted in Italy, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Japan.
Among those who had significant hearing loss and did not use hearing aids, around 60% said they often felt physically exhausted in the evenings, while only 40% of people who used hearing aids said the same.

A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“This research reveals just how much benefit hearing aids can have to a person’s mental and physical well being as well as their hearing. Straining to concentrate on what people are saying can be exhausting and if you are dealing with hearing loss it is well worth booking a free hearing test at one of our hearing centre’s to find out if a hearing aid is suitable for you.”
