Understanding Hearing Loss and Possible Hearing Health Problems

Despite its commonality and treatability, hearing loss can be a source of significant frustration. Through the insightful book ‘Hearing Loss for Dummies,‘ authors Frank Lin and Nicholas Reed from the prestigious Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, readers are offered a clear path to improved hearing health. This guide not only helps in seeking the right assistance for a better auditory experience across various life settings but also sheds light on the critical linkage between hearing health and the heightened risks of depression, social isolation, cognitive decline, and dementia.

Dedicated to World Hearing Day 2023, we also highlighted another relevant campaign by Johns Hopkins which educates people on hearing health: Know Your Hearing Number Campaign. To understand the urgency of addressing hearing health proactively better we also recommend you articles about young people’s listening habits and the need for a national ‘Protect Your Hearing’ month.
