Question: I’m a 60 year old man and my doctor has never recommended a hearing test. Should I have one?
Absolutely! Sixty percent of the 34 million people with hearing loss in the United States are male. And hearing loss remains one of the most commonly unaddressed health conditions in America today. It’s important to understand the impact of men’s hearing health and to raise awareness of the link between hearing loss and several chronic diseases. Research shows that men are often reluctant to address hearing loss. But what many don’t realize is that hearing loss affects virtually every aspect of a man’s life—from relationships and intimacy to job performance and earnings. Unfortunately, most physicians don’t ask their patients if they have any hearing problems. So it’s important that we call attention to men’s hearing health today.
