Approximately 36 million American adults report some degree of hearing loss
Have you ever been in a conversation with a friend and just found yourself nodding your head throughout the majority of the conversation? It’s not that you were in agreement with what was being said. Truthfully, you couldn’t hear most of it very well. But just to avoid interruption, embarrassment, or seeming like you were having difficulty understanding, you continued to nod. You’re not alone. Most people with hearing loss endure the same difficulties with understanding conversations especially in background noise and simply use the nod as a perfect gesture to get through conversations without drawing attention to their hearing loss. However, hearing loss is a very serious condition that, in most cases, is irreversible. Addressing your hearing loss now can save you from a lot of hardship in the future.
