Have you gotten your hearing tested?

Statistics show that hearing loss has doubled in the past 30 years.  Have you tested your hearing?  Do you have a baseline to test again for the future?  Curious how many people test their hearing as parf their health routines.

I’ve been using hearing aids (miracle ear) - the smaller inner ear types that are battery operated with the ME app and they have worked well over the  8 years since I started.  I get them fully checked twice per year - but have them cleaned and checked at least once per 3 months. ME - is good at reminding you when it’s time for a check.

Yes and I learned I lost about 50% of my hearing so I wear hearing aids now.

I have had my hearing tested and I have moderate hearing loss. I'm trying to find an ENT that is in my insurance company network so I have no out of pocket costs.

Hello all,

Yes, I have.

This is a nice idea.

But beware that any hearing test short of a complete survey by a licensed and certified audiologist may miss critical issues, some of which, balance and orientation, you may be find surprising.

Many, if not most, insurance policies cover visits to an ENT(Ear, Nose, Throat) specialist whose offiice typically has an audiolgist on staff. The other advantage of an ENT is that they can suggest options if needed.

I have Sudden Sensorineural Hearing loss, diagnosed by one and confirmed by a second, something no hearing aid in the world will help
