Hearing loss is more than just an inconvenient side effect of aging, research shows it’s detrimental to your cognitive health. A 12-year study by researchers at Johns Hopkins found that mild hearing loss doubled the incidence of dementia. Moderate loss tripled the incidence, and people with a severe hearing impairment were five times more likely to develop dementia.
According to a major study by The National Council on the Aging (NCOA), those with untreated hearing loss were more likely to report depression, anxiety, and paranoia and were less likely to participate in organized social activities, compared to those who wear hearing aids.
