Why You Need Regular Hearing Tests, Kalispell, Montana

Hearing loss is a surprisingly common health problem. You don’t have to live with the negative social and physical aspects of this problem. All you need to do is simply take a trip to the ear, nose, and throat physicians and doctors of audiology at Glacier Ear Nose & Throat and Glacier Hearing Services in Kalispell, MT. The benefits of checking your hearing routinely are immense. Below, we outline the benefits of regular hearing tests.

3 Reasons to Get Regular Hearing Tests

1. Early Detection & Treatment of Hearing Loss

Regular hearing tests allow for early detection of hearing loss so you can treat it before it has adverse affects. Hearing loss can be caused by serious health conditions which are treatable, and need to be ruled out by the audiologist and ENT physician. Untreated hearing loss has been known to cause many problems in a patient’s health as well as in their relationships: It can increase their chances of cognitive decline and dementia and has also been known to cause social isolation and depression.

2. Painless & Quick

Most people don’t recognize the severity of their hearing loss until it’s effects are severe.There is really no excuse to put your health on the back burner. During your appointment, the doctor of audiology will test your hearing and also do a physical examination of the inside of your ear to make sure nothing looks abnormal.

3. Early Warning Signs of Other Issues

Another reason you should get regular hearing tests is they can uncover some early warning signs for other health conditions, like tumors,  cardiovascular disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
