How Can We Prevent Hearing Loss?

Do you often find yourself needing to turn the volume up on your TV? If so, that’s a pretty good sign that you need a hearing aid. There are two main reasons why you might be suffering from hearing loss.

Age

As you age, your ears become less healthy and are more prone to hearing loss. This is because the hairs in your ear can’t detect vibrations like they used to. Thankfully, wearing a hearing aid is a safe and effective way to treat hearing loss.

Loud Sounds

High noise levels can also cause hearing loss. You risk damaging your ears when you don’t actively protect your hearing. Noise-induced hearing loss is also treatable with a hearing aid, as well as by implementing hearing protection.

If you wear earplugs and avoid exposure to loud noise, you can effectively combat noise-induced hearing loss.

How Do You Stop Your Ears From Making Noise?

Known as tinnitus, you can reduce or prevent the ringing in your ears by trying a few different solutions. Let’s take a moment to discuss some of the most common ways to stop your ears from making noise.

Earwax Removal

Sometimes, simply removing earwax can help to decrease the symptoms of tinnitus. Whenever earwax is responsible for the ringing in your ears, it is because the wax has become impacted. To safely remove impacted earwax, you may need to see a doctor or buy an over-the-counter earwax removal kit.

Medication

Sometimes, medications are the culprit to ringing in your ear or ears. If you suspect this to be the cause of your tinnitus, it’s essential that you speak with a doctor or hearing care professional. You may need to change your current medications to reduce your tinnitus symptoms.

Blood Pressure

Underlying vascular conditions can also cause ringing in your ear. As such, it’s important that you seek medical care to determine the root cause of your tinnitus symptoms. You may require medication or even surgery.

White Noise Machine

These units produce simulated sounds, such as ocean waves or rain to reduce the effects of tinnitus. Additionally, you may want to try running a fan or dehumidifier. Such devices have been shown to reduce ringing in the ears by masking the sound.

Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are often especially helpful in treating tinnitus. If you’re unsure what kind of hearing aid you need, take a hearing test. In doing so, you can identify the root cause of the ringing in your ears and work to remedy it.

How Can You Prevent Hearing Loss From Getting Worse?

Below, you will find 5 effective tips that can help you prevent your hearing loss from getting worse.

1. Avoid Loud Noises

One of the most common types of hearing damage is noise-induced hearing loss. If you suffer from noise-induced hearing loss, it was because you were exposed to loud noise levels.

Exposure to loud sounds can come in the form of many everyday occurrences, such as riding a motorcycle, attending concerts, using power tools, and listening to music with earphones with the volume too high.

2. Take Care When Listening to Music

For effective hearing loss prevention, avoid loud sounds as much as possible. Wear hearing protection and turn the volume down to fewer than 85 decibels when listening to music or watching television.

3. Prevent Hearing Loss During Loud Events and Activities

If you must attend a concert or other loud activity, use hearing protection. Wear earplugs at all times whenever you are around loud sounds. Exposure to loud noises will affect the health of your ears and quicken the onset of hearing loss.

The best way to prevent hearing loss is to use hearing protection such as earplugs on a regular basis. Even earmuffs are effective in preventing hearing loss. Earmuffs work to lower the volume levels of music and other loud sounds by as much as 30 decibels.

4. Take Precautions at Work

If your line of work dictates that you must be exposed to loud noises on a regular basis, you should be doing all that you can to protect your hearing. Noise-induced hearing loss prevention will help keep the hair cells in your ears healthy, thereby providing hearing protection.

5. Get Your Hearing Tested
