Hearing Loss

Facts About Hearing Loss

There are several causes of hearing loss that can occur at almost any stage of life, from birth to old age. Nearly 90% of hearing loss cases are caused by, “The Accumulation of Birthdays”, as Arne Zabell, the original owner of My First Hearing Clinic, was fond of saying.

Nerve endings stop regenerating new cells by the time most of us are in our twenties, and deterioration begins very slowly as we hit our mid-to-late 20s. For many people this decline doesn’t noticeably affect their lives, until around the age of sixty, where about 10-20% of the population is affected by noticeable hearing loss. Only 5% of that 10-20% will actually take steps to treat their hearing loss.
