Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My 68 year old mother has a hearing problem. I understand it is due to her age but is there any device which can enhance the hearing in her case?

Answered by Dr. Vinay. S. Bhat

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are various causes for hearing problems. Among them, the most common one is an age-related hearing loss known as presbycusis. If hearing loss is significant and confirmed by an audiological examination such as pure tone audiogram, she can use hearing aids. Hearing aids are available in various types depending on the area where they are applied and depending on the technology used. You should first consult a nearby ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist and then consult an audiologist for more information.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
