Posted by Cedars on May 17, 2016

Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina found that middle-aged adults with untreated hearing loss had substantially higher medical bills compared with those without hearing loss.

A second study from Johns Hopkins university found that moderate to severe hearing loss in those age 70+ was associated with a 54 percent higher risk of death.

Ask your physician for advise on how to be tested for hearing loss.
