We often take our hearing for granted, and it’s not until it begins to deteriorate that we start to think about what a silent world might be like. We assume that as we get older, a certain amount of hearing loss is inevitable, but this isn’t necessarily the case.
Our Story at AidYourHearing.com
AidYourHearing.com is where you’ll find all the information you need about hearing loss, the causes, and what you can do to improve your hearing. We explain the different types of treatment and what kind of specialist you need.
Our site isn’t all about loss though. We’ve also gathered some information about preventing hearing loss. Our team at AidYourHearing.com knows how important it is that you get the right kind of support, so we’ve done some research for you about the Hearing Loss Association of America and the deaf community.
Our Promise to You at AidYourHearing.com
It’s our goal to make sure you have the most up-to-date information available about your condition and treatments. Our pages are designed to answer any questions you may have.
We recommend that you visit the Types of Hearing Loss page first, so you can understand if your hearing loss is sensorineural, congenital, or conductive. Reading the Causes page may also help to clear this up for you.
Hearing Tests are an important tool in diagnosing your hearing loss and the Doctors page tells you about the different types of hearing doctors and what their specialties are. The roles of otolaryngologists, otologists, and audiologists might be more different than you think.
The Prevention and Hearing Loss Treatments pages delve into topics such as ear protection, hearing aids, and cochlear implants. Hearing Aids discusses the developing technology of hearing aids and how to care for them.
We Discuss Specific Hearing Loss Treatments
When you visit the Cochlear Implants page, you’ll learn about the success rate of this type of surgery, while the Implanted Bone-Conduction Hearing Device page tells you about middle ear implants. We explain what titanium vibrator implants are on the Osseointegrated Device page.
The Decibel Loudness Chart page provides some valuable information, and the Reversing Hearing Loss page discusses the benefits of gene therapy.
We’ve given the Hearing Loss Association of America its own page, and the American Sign Language section tells you more about the deaf community in general.
The Living with Hearing Loss page investigates issues like self-esteem for kids and adults, listening training programs, and hearing loop technology.
Some Final Information for You
The team at AidYourHearing.com is aware that some of the terms you’ll read about on our site will be completely new to you. We’ve added a Glossary that will explain these in a clear and easy-to-understand way.
Sometimes being given a lot of information can be confusing, particularly with a topic as important as hearing loss. The Reviews page will help you decide which treatments and products will be the best for you to use. AidYourHearing.com will continue to keep you informed of new approaches and solutions for your hearing.
