Why Annual Hearing Tests Are So Important , East Brunswick, New Jersey

Your hearing health affects more than just your ability to effectively communicate. It also impacts your overall health and wellness. Today, the experienced audiologists from East Brunswick, New Jersey’s top hearing center, Granville Brady, Au.D., explain why annual hearing tests are so important.

4 Health Benefits of an Annual Hearing Test

1. Stave off Diseases & Illnesses

Hearing loss has been correlated with conditions including hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. It’s also been linked to dementia. Additionally, those with untreated hearing loss possess a higher risk of developing conditions like depression, social isolation, and anxiety. Annual tests can help identify the potential for hearing loss, lowering your risk of developing these conditions.

2. Prevent Hearing Loss

With annual hearing tests, your audiologist can detect any hearing issues before they exacerbate. When caught in its earliest stages, hearing loss is treatable. Meanwhile, if you wait too long, your condition may become irreversible.

3. Boost Your Brain Power

Hearing loss has also been associated with more rapid brain tissue loss. As a result, those afflicted may have difficulty with typical brain power functions, like solving problems, reading, and cognitive understanding.

4. Improve Your Mood & Overall Well-Being

People with untreated hearing loss have a higher risk of experiencing falls and hospitalizations; they also suffer from a lower standard of mental and physical health overall. From your day-to-day mood to your physical strength and mobility, the quality of your hearing plays a fundamental role in your overall health. 

Fortunately, hearing loss can be effectively combated and treated with the help of regular diagnostic testing.
