Causes of Hearing Loss

One of the most common "myths" about hearing loss is that only "old people" suffer from it! In fact, the reverse is true! The majority (65%) of people with hearing loss are younger than 65 and six million people in the U.S. between 18 and 44 suffer from hearing loss.

The primary causes of hearing loss are: Exposure to noise, family history of hearing loss, medicine, aging process, disease and head trauma.

Types of Hearing Loss

Not all hearing loss can be corrected through the use of hearing aids or alternative listening devices. The type of hearing loss determines the specific treatment required.

There are four types of hearing loss

  • Conductive: This could be caused by something as simple as earwax buildup!
  • Sensorineural: This is caused when tiny hairs in the cochlea are missing or damaged.
  • Mixed: This is a combination of conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.
  • Central: Strokes and central nerve diseases are often the cause of this type of hearing loss.
