Causes of Hearing Loss

Any number of contributing factors can lead to hearing difficulties.

We often associate hearing loss with age, and yet, there are many other reasons such as:

Causes of Hearing Loss
  • Excessive exposure to loud noise
  • Ear wax
  • Genetic conditions
  • Cholesteatoma         
  • Otosclerosis
  • Some medications
  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Head trauma
  • Some infections and illnesses

While many of the causes are things that are out of our control, we can take measures to prevent further loss and preserve the hearing we have.

Avoiding exposure to loud noises such as like gunfire, construction, and loud music and wearing custom hearing protection can help prevent hearing loss.

Some causes of hearing loss such as ear wax, infections and Otosclerosis can be medically treatable, and some hearing losses are permanent. Any changes in your hearing are important to detect and evaluate as early as possible, to assist with rehabilitation. We can advise on actions to take, and make medical referrals for your GP or ENT Specialist if necessary.

No matter the cause of your hearing loss, you can benefit from booking in with us for a free hearing test to set your mind at ease.
