Hearing Aids Can Help You Live Longer

Nov 22, 2013 Hearing Aids Can Help You Live Longer

People who use hearing aids to treat hearing impairments don’t just have better relationships and more active social lives; they also live longer than people with untreated hearing loss. Find out more…

A recent study confirmed something we already knew – that seniors who use hearing aids have better social relationships than those who have untreated hearing loss. But it also confirmed something new – older men with hearing loss who use hearing aids live longer!

Hearing Loss Leads To Premature Death

The study out of Iceland and published in the journal Age and Ageing included almost 5000 participants aged 67 and up. Researchers found that older men with hearing loss, or with both hearing loss and visual impairment, have a higher chance of dying within a five-year period than those without the same impairments.

Hearing Impairment Related To Early Death

When compared to men with normal hearing and normal sight, the men with impaired hearing and sight had a greater chance of dying from any cause. Men who had only hearing impairment were at a greater risk of dying from cardiovascular disease than men without any impairments.

Hearing Aids Lower Your Chance Of Dying

The study found that people who used hearing aids to treat hearing loss – whether they had any visual impairment or not – had a lower chance of dying than the people who didn’t use hearing aids.

It Matters For Men

It is important to note that while there were significant differences for the men in the study, for women there was no association between hearing loss, visual impairment and mortality.

Get Hearing Aids And Live Longer

If you or a senior loved one has been avoiding having their hearing tested, let this be your wake-up call. It has been proven time and again that those people who wear hearing aids have better relationships with family and friends, are happier, less depressed, and now we know they may live longer too!

Don’t wait another minute. Call our team of experienced audiologists today (703-942-8110) to get your hearing tested for FREE, and see if hearing aids can help you live your best – and longest – life.
