    1. The Signs Of HearingLoss Do you often find yourself asking everybody to repeat what they said? Has it gotten harder to talk to someone in a noisy, crowded place? Do you notice a ringing in your ears when everything isquiet? Hearing loss creeps up on you. It occurs gradually, so it is often difficult to tell. Here are some of the tell- tale signs that you might have some hearingloss. If you have worked with heavy machinery, firearms or power tools. Especially if you haven't always worn protection such as earplugs, you probably suffer some hearing loss. Even spending time in a crowded bar or going to lots of movies or concerts can take its toll on yourhearing. It seems like everybody is mumbling all the time. If you notice that people speak more quietly lately, it's probably you! Also, if you find yourself turning the TV or stereo volume up higher, it's probably not because the electronics are wearingout. You often ask people to repeat things. This is something that may be hard to notice, but see how often you do it. If you misunderstand a lot of things people say, this may also be an indication that your are suffering from hearing loss. You might also find yourself paying more attention to peoples' faces in everyday conversation. This is also asign. It's hard to continue any conversation. You might also experience stress and feel nervous when you have to talk to people. It is common for people to feel tired because they are always trying their hardest to follow what people aresaying.

    2. Some types of hearing loss are genetic. If you have older family members who have trouble hearing, you may develop the same problem. Some kinds of middle ear disturbances are caused by a disease rather than environmentalfactors. • You often get ear infections or experience dizziness. This might not be just waxbuild-up. • Ringing In The Ears: Many people experience a high pitched ringing in their ears, and it may not be noticeable all of the time. When you are in a quiet place, you are more likely to hearit. • These Conditions Often Go Hand In Hand With Hearing Loss: circulation problems, thyroid problems, diabetes and heart trouble. If you have, you may be at a higher risk of suffering hearing problems aswell. • Hearing Loss Is Not Only A Medical Problem: It is often a social issue. If you lose a significant amount of your hearing, it becomes embarrassing to socialize. You may find yourself often nervous and stressed out when you interact withothers. • If any of these signs sound familiar, go to your doctor and get your ears tested. The sooner you start take care of the problem, the easier it will be. Another way is to use hearing aids with doctor recommendation. • What Is HearingAids? • Hearing aids have been about for centuries, but thankfully, as with many other things, progress has made them smaller. Do you remember those old fashioned ear trumpets? Nothing like advertising the fact that you’re a little hard of hearing is there, what did you say? Well, many of the most modern hearing aids are just about invisible, so if it’s important for you not to tell the whole world of your hearing difficulties they need neverknow. • Top Hearing AidBrands • Tweak • LifeEar • Types of HearingAids • Body Worn Hearing Aids were one of the first types, but progress has meant that they are now rarely used. They basically consisted of an ear mold, a case and a cord. The hearing aid amplifier bit was in the case which was worn around the belt or in a pocket (about the size of playing cards), this was connected to the ear mold with a cord and could really provide some good levels of amplification. These cumbersome devices, however, have now been replaced with much smallerdesigns.

    3. Behind the Ear Hearing Aids (BTE) was the next on the scene, pretty much, with a small case sitting just behind the ear. These are usually made from plastic and available in a variety of colors. The ear mold is actually manufactured to exact size from an impression taken from the individual’s ear. BTE hearing aids are still largely used for babies and children, who need to have them replaced often as they grow. In the Ear Hearing Aids (ITE) are custom made to fit each individual ear. Although they’re in the ear, they can sometimes be spotted if you stand face to face with thewearer. In the Canal Hearing Aids (ITC) are smaller still, and only fill the bottom portion of the ear. These are generally best for mild cases of hearing loss, up to moderately severe. They’re a bit more expensive than the models above, (smaller does generally mean more pricey doesn’tit?) Completely In the Canal Hearing Aids (CIC) are smaller still, and these are not generally recommended for people who still have good low frequency hearing because of the “occlusionaffect”. Choosing a HearingAid With so many different styles and models of hearing aid to choose from, you might think that it’s quite a problem trying to choose your favorite, but don’t worry, your hearing aid specialist will advise you on which is the best type for your particular problem. Some are more expensive than others, some are more durable than others and some are more suitable for particular hearing loss problems, so be advised by an expert. That’s what they’re therefor.
