Common signs of hearing loss

What Causes Hearing Loss

You may experience hearing loss for a variety of reasons. It could be genetic, age-related, or other surprising factors such as obesity, exposure to loud music for extended periods, smoking and even drugs like Aspirin and Advil can affect your ears.

If you think you are suffering from some form of hearing loss, it is important to get your ears checked right away. Leaving hearing loss unaddressed can lead to other health issues like depression and dementia.
