The hearing loss warning sign: You know someone is talking, but you can’t make out what he's saying.
The fix: High tech hearing aids that no one will see. And if you are thinking that this is something that only older adults withdegenerative hearing loss due to old age suffer with, then think again. Millions of Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 also have hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises from work or leisure activities, as well as various ear diseases and disorders. But there is plenty of help available to treat the symptoms and improve your hearing. Depending on the cause and type of your hearing loss, treatment options vary from medications to surgery to the latest in advanced digital hearing aids and even implantable hearing devices.
