15 Causes of Hearing Loss and how you can lessen your chances of suffering from it

28/01/2020

Imagine if the volume was suddenly turned down on your world, if the vibrant caterwaul of modern life somehow became dull and distorted. Imagine people in shops or on the streets becoming frustrated (or even offended) when you couldn’t hear them talking to you, or the disorientation you might feel at only noticing oncoming traffic by sight alone.

Now try to imagine that world slipping away even further into complete silence. Your favourite songs would fade into memory; the sweet, familiar voices of loved ones would never be heard again.

It sounds horrible, doesn’t it? Yet this can be a harsh reality for the 11 Million British people (that’s 1 in 6 of us) who suffer from some form of hearing loss. It isn’t always as extreme as the scenarios above, but any form of hearing loss can be life changing.

Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is a generally permanent condition, with symptoms ranging from mild to complete loss of hearing. It is usually the result of damage to the inner ear, either to sensitive hair cells, or to an important component in the hearing process, such as the cochlea or cranial nerves.

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at what causes hearing loss, as well as how you can lessen your chances of suffering from it.
