DID YOU KNOW…
…that hearing loss has been linked to dementia? According to the Hearing Loss Association of America, hearing loss may increase the risk of cognitive problems and even dementia:
In a study focusing on dementia, researchers monitored the cognitive health of 639 people who were mentally sharp when the study began. The volunteers’ mental abilities were tested regularly, following most for about 12 years, and some for as long as 18 years. The results were striking: The worse the initial hearing loss was, the more likely the person was to develop dementia. Compared with people of normal hearing, those with moderate hearing loss had triple the risk. Source: AARP
