Benefits of early treatment.
Untreated hearing loss can lead to other health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and dementia. It has also been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. It can even affect job performance and income negatively. Fortunately, identifying and treating hearing loss early can restore a sense of control and help you live a fuller, richer life.
If you have noticed sudden or one-sided hearing loss, pain, drainage or visible injury to one or both ears, or if you have experienced dizziness, you should consult your physician.
