Men Who Want to Stay Active, Feel Younger, and Remain Socially and Professionally Engaged Should Address Hearing Loss, BHI Advises
Date:5/23/2013

hearing aids was found to reduce the risk of income loss dramatically—by 90 to 100 percent for those with milder hearing loss, and from 65 to 77 percent for those whose hearing loss was severe to moderate. The study also found that people with severe hearing loss who do use hearing aids are twice as likely to be employed as their peers who do not use them.

In recent years, considerable information has emerged on the link between hearing loss and several common chronic diseases that men suffer—including heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer's disease, and depression. While research is still needed to fully understand the association between hearing loss and these illnesses, this relatively new information makes it all the more important that men take the BHI Hearing Check and include hearing health as part of their routine medical care.

BHI reminds men that that there are simple things they can do to protect their hearing. Listening to smartphones and MP3 players only at a low volume, and wearing earplugs in noisy environments—like sporting events, clubs, concerts, or when using power tools and riding motorcycles—are examples.

As part of its efforts to promote National Men's Health Week, BHI is encouraging hearing healthcare professionals nationwide to organize hearing screenings in their communities; host health fairs; disseminate men's health information; and publicize National Men's Health Week.
