Hearing Loss Overview
Signs of Hearing Loss
The loss of hearing may have adverse social and health effects on the person who has it. It is often attributed to a decline in the quality of life of the person suffering.
Those with hearing loss tend to stay away from social situations, particularly in busy places such as bars and restaurants. This results in withdrawal from socialization and isolation occurs. Recent studies have also linked hearing loss to impaired memory, depression, and even dementia over the long term.
