A recent study published in the American Journal of Audiology found that problems with an individual’s cardiovascular system can also cause potential problems with one’s ability to hear.
The same study found that a healthy cardiovascular system – a person’s heart, arteries and veins – has a positive effect on hearing . This gives individuals even more incentive to take steps to improve our heart and hearing health.
Check of your risk factors for heart disease including blood pressure, weight, cholesterol and blood sugar. Determining your personal risk for heart disease, you can determine with your doctor which healthy steps you should take toward a healthier heart.
Stress reduction is another important part of protecting your heart because chronic tension can damage the cardiovascular system over time. Staying connected to friends and family is a great way to improve your mood and reduce stress. If you find you are avoiding social situations because you are missing out on parts of conversations or asking for too many repeats, talk to a hearing care professional about today’s advanced technology in hearing aids.
Untreated hearing loss has been found to lead to withdrawal, depression and social isolation. Hearing aids, like the new Oticon Agil, do more than enhance your ability to hear conversation, even in noisy social situations.
For an opportunity to participate in a demonstration of the Oticon Agil, please call 720-335-5134.
