With millions of Americans over the age of 18 reporting hearing problems, it’s no surprise that the NIH states that around 28.8 million US adults could benefit from hearing aids. Hearing aids aren’t like corrective lenses or glasses; they don’t restore hearing but they can amplify sounds to make it easier to hear the TV, the doorbell ringing, the oven timer, and even conversations with friends. Here at our Flint, MI, practice, our ENT specialist Dr. Mehmet Agabigum and audiologist Lisa Wagner offer a wide range of hearing services and can provide you with the appropriate hearing aid to fit your needs.
The Signs of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss is often gradual, and it typically occurs as we age. Age is the biggest predictor of hearing loss these days. So, how do you know when it may be time to turn to our team for a hearing evaluation? Some warning signs of hearing loss include:
- Needing to blast the volume on the radio or TV in order to hear it
- Others complaining about the volume of your TV or radio
- Asking people to repeat themselves often
- Feeling as if everyone around you is mumbling
- Difficulty following conversations, particularly in noisy environments
How We Can Help
