• Is hearing health connected at all to overall health?

    In a word—yes. In fact, people with hearing loss tend to miss work due to sickness more often than people without hearing loss.  Among the possible health effects of hearing loss: changes to the immune system, fatigue from trying too hard to understand people, frustration/depression anger, increased sicknesses and hospital visits, impaired memory and an increased risk of dementia. There’s also the risk of injury that comes from not being able to hear traffic signals and alarms.
