Hearing Loss & Brain Tissue

After scanning the brains of people who had not addressed their hearing loss, Johns Hopkins University research has shown that people with unaddressed hearing loss will lose more brain tissue on an annual basis vs. those who exercise their brains with hearing aids: “Overall, the scientists report those with impaired hearing lost more than an additional cubic centimeter of brain tissue each year compared with those with normal hearing”

The research was supported by the intramural research program of the National Institute on Aging, the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders .Susan Resnick, Ph.D., of the National Institute on Aging was the study’s senior investigator. Michael A. Kraut, M.D., Ph.D., of Johns Hopkins; and Luigi Ferrucci, M.D., Ph.D., and Yang An, M.S., both of the National Institute on Aging, also contributed to this research

Hearing Loss & Relationship Challenges

Being unable to understand someone can be extremely frustrating. Data shows that on average, people delay addressing their hearing loss for seven years after initial symptoms arise. Through the years, as many struggle to communicate one-on-one and in group settings, they frequently start to withdraw from key conversations with their spouses, family and loved ones. Phone conversations can be challenging and frustrating for those on both ends of the line.

Does Hearing Loss Affect My Balance?

Many of those who have trouble with their balance find that the problem lies in their ears. Ear balance disorders can make you feel unsteady, wobbly, or like you are constantly moving. These sensations of vertigo can seriously impact your ability to walk, stand upright, and even sit up. Hearing loss doesn’t cause balance disorders on its own, but problems with the inner ear may also disrupt your vestibular system. Hearing loss may be a sign of an underlying condition which is also impairing your balance.
