Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans is living with hearing loss? This is according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Young and old alike experience hearing loss, and growing numbers of adults in their 40s and 50s are struggling to hear. For adults over the age of 75, half can expect to have difficulties hearing. Living with untreated hearing loss has some extremely negative outcomes, yet many Americans choose to ignore or deny their hearing loss rather than facing the facts and making the right decision for their hearing and their health.
