Have you heard some of the myths about hearing loss?  Maybe you’ve even bought into them.  Our friends over at Healthy Hearing have just put together an excellent list of 5 common hearing loss myths you should be aware of.  We emphasize a couple of them here, as these myths often prevent people from taking action:

                Myth:  I have hearing loss in one ear, but the other ear is fine so I’m ok.               
That is simply not true.  Hearing loss in one ear impacts your ability to hear as well as your overall health in many ways.
               
                Myth:  My hearing loss cannot be helped.
This may not be true as well.  Many forms of hearing loss can be improved.  The sooner you get it checked by a hearing-care professional, the better.

To explore these myths in more detail, and to learn about additional hearing loss myths, refer to the Healthy Hearing article at www.healthyhearing.com/report/52638-Top-five-myths-about-hearing-loss.

Don’t let these fables get in the way of you taking action. CaptionCall is an active advocate for people with hearing loss.  We encourage people with hearing loss to seek treatment early and to actively manage their hearing health.  Our mission is to help people with hearing loss stay socially connected for a longer, happier, healthier life!
