Consequences of Untreated Hearing Loss

If left untreated, hearing loss can lead to:

Dementia

Individuals with dementia suffer from memory loss and have difficulty remembering things and concentrating. 

Studies have shown that adults with hearing loss are at a higher risk for dementia. The risk for dementia doubles for mild hearing loss, triples with moderate hearing loss, and is five-fold for severe hearing loss.

Depression

Losing the ability to hear sounds that we take for granted can cause feelings of sadness and anxiety, increasing the risk of depression.

Individuals with depression tend to lose interest in things they once loved and have trouble concentrating or making simple decisions.

Social Isolation

Individuals with hearing loss may choose to avoid interaction and isolate themselves as hearing becomes more difficult. 

Socially isolated individuals tend to have unfulfilling relationships and feel like they don’t belong anywhere. These factors can result in feelings of loneliness, increasing the risk of dementia and depression.
