Which type of hearing aid we get from govt schemes it free or costly it can IIC hearing aid by govt schemes.
Usually Government schemes only offer body worn and manual BTE devices which are practically obsolete! RIC type (receiver-in-the-canal) or ITC (in-the-canal) or CIC (completely-in-canal) are more expensive sophisticated Digital Multichannel hearing aids. The better hearing aids start at ₹20,000 per ear and go on to almost ₹4,00,000 per ear for the top of the line super-concealed nano-technology hearing aids!

If you have uncontrolled diabetes it affects the nerves and may cause hearing loss. Your hearing loss may be due to other causes also for that you should consult an ent doctor. Nothing can assure you 100 % cure at the age of 62 yrs but keeping your blood sugar within target level makes you healthy in every ways. So, check your fbs, ppbs, hba1c, urea, creatinine, urine acr to know your current level of diabetes control and inform me. Dr. S. Modak

Hearing Loss - How To Deal With It?

Hearing Loss - How To Deal With It?

Hearing is one of the five senses that you or anyone else relies on for communication and a whole host of other things. Among the five senses, touch, smell, taste, hearing and sight, it is often hearing, which is the most easily affected. You don't have to be a senior citizen to experience hearing loss as it is quite common among younger people as well. This problem is also getting widespread with each passing day.

Before coping with hearing loss, the first job is to detect it:
If you have a hunch that you or any of your loved ones is suffering from hearing loss, it is important that you get it diagnosed. Some of the common symptoms of hearing loss will be:

  1. Hearing difficulties while talking to someone over the phone
  2. Straining to hear conversations with family members or friends in household situations 
  3. People usually need to repeat what they talk to you with a louder voice
  4. You often hear complaints that you keep the TV too loud.
  5. In crowded situations, such as family gatherings or a restaurant, you have problems listening to people.

Although this condition tends to affect senior citizens, an increasing trend shows younger people i.e. people mostly in their 40 and 50s and even younger than that suffer from this condition.

How to deal with hearing loss?
Some of the options to deal with hearing loss are mentioned below.

  1. Once diagnosed with hearing problems, change your ways of communication: If you or your loved ones have been diagnosed with hearing problems, it is important that both adjust your ways to deal with the problem. Rather than getting angry at the other for not being able to communicate effectively, develop and strategize ways to make communication less problematic and erratic.
  2. Cochlear implants: This is a newer technology, which has gained popularity in the past decade or so. These are directly implanted into the inner ear and are designed to bypass the damaged areas of the ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve. These have become very popular, although, are not a replacement of natural hearing. It is only prescribed for people who have severe hearing loss or are deaf.
  3. Hearing aids: Although selecting a hearing aid is difficult as the patient needs to be comfortable, once selected it is one of the best solutions for the hearing impaired. The functionality of these devices can be extended with the hearing assistive technology or HAT devices that can focus the audio waves depending on the situations and give a more tailored approach for every individual's needs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Ent specialist.

Hi I must ask wether the hearing aid is a digital or semidigital hearing aid, sometimes the hearing aid requires calibration which can be done from the place you bought it. So get it checked and then use it. Better use a digital version of hearing aid. Regards.

Is there a medicine to improve hearing? or what are the ways to improve hearing longevity?

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS

Hearing loss may be conductive (due to ear drum perforation/ ear ossicle damage) or neural deafness. It can be diagnosed by audiometry ( hearing test). If it comes out as conductive deafness, can be corrected by surgery or if it comes out neural then hearing aid is only treatment.

Hearing Loss - Causes And Prevention

Hearing Loss - Causes And Prevention

The partial or total inability to hear is known as hearing impairment or hearing loss. It can be present at birth, or develop later in life.

There are a number of factors, which may cause hearing loss

1. Age - Age is the biggest factor when it comes to the loss of hearing, and you may lose the ability to hear as you age. This condition is known as presbycusis. It becomes difficult to understand high-frequency sounds like that of a child or a woman when you get old.

2. Noise - When you are exposed to loud noises for a prolonged period of time, it damages your ears. This leads to loss of hearing. 5% of the total population of the world is affected by noise (the degree of suffering varies). It may be a result of continuous exposure to loud music or a sudden exposure to a loud noise like an explosion.

3. Hereditary disorders - Hearing disorder may be inherited by the dominant or recessive genes of parents in the child. 70-80% of these cases inherit from the recessive genes, whereas 20-25% inherit hearing loss from the dominant genes.

4. Trauma - Serious injuries of the head/ears may cause loss of hearing, which may be either temporary or permanent. When damage is caused to the brain, the brain fails to process the message conveyed by the ears. So even if the ears are totally functional, a person may face the problem in hearing.

5. Perinatal problems - The ototoxic effects on the fetus due to excess intake of alcohol during pregnancy lead to hearing the loss in about 64% of the infants born to alcoholic mothers.

Also, premature birth can be associated with hearing loss due to high risk of being exposed to noise in neonatal units.

Knowing about the causes of hearing loss can lead you a step closer to preventing this disorder as you age.

Here are some useful tips that can help prevent hearing loss:

1. Be more aware - You should be diligent and aware of the situations, which may risk your hearing ability and should try to avoid such situations as much as possible. Limit your exposure to sources of hazardous noises like firearms, firecrackers, concerts and clubs.

2. Take precautionary measures - If your occupation calls for working at an environment of loud noises, use earplugs or earmuffs to block out the excessive noise. Also, make sure that you work in a place where employers take all the necessary measures of noise control under the federal or state regulations.

3. Monitor your use of gadgets - Monitor and control the use of hearing devices, and try to reduce the use of headphones/ earphones as much as possible. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ent Specialist.

I am suffering from Warrdenburg-Syndrome type II, I have heterochromia iridus (right eye blue and left eye brown) and I am deaf from left ear. The deafness was kind of progressive. During my childhood I was able to hear partly however gradually I became completely deaf from left ear. I am able to hear properly from right ear.

7 Tips To Protect Your Hearing!

7 Tips To Protect Your Hearing!

Your hearing is one of the most important function your body carries out and sometimes you realize that you are losing your sense of hearing, when it is too late to get it back. There are two main reasons for this. One of the reasons is age and the other is when the inner ear's hair cells break down and do not pick up sound well.

Here are 7 ways to safeguard your hearing:

  1. Try to avoid loud places: It is not advisable to go to places where you have to shout to be heard, such as in a street, a concert or a construction site.
  2. Buy low noise rating equipment: The equipments in your house will make sound that you hear the most. Try to avoid these equipments by buying appliances with a low noise rating.
  3. Wear hearing protection at loud places: However, it is true that it is not always possible to avoid loud noises. This is when you need to get hearing protection. Earplugs and earmuffs are two of the best ways to make sure that even when you are in a loud place, your hearing does not get affected. Earplugs and earmuffs generally reduce sound by 15 to 30 decibels, which may be crucial to make sure that later in your life, you do not lose your hearing.
  4. Avoid smokeSmoking raises your chance of hearing loss. Second hand smoke does the same thing. Therefore, try to avoid, both smoking and secondhand smoking. 
  5. Remove earwax properly: Earwax cannot be removed properly using a cotton swab. Instead, you should use an irrigation kit. Remember this as otherwise; the earwax could muffle your hearing.
  6. Avoid medications which reduce hearing: Certain medications increase hearing loss. Therefore, double check with your doctor to make sure your medicines will not make you lose your hearing.
  7. Get your hearing tested: Finally, get your hearing tested as identifying the problem early on can help stop worsen the situation.

Hi, if the problem lies in the inner ear, the only solution is to wear a hearing aid according to your audiogram. If Dr. Suggests you to wear a aid, so do the same.

Hi lybrate-user from your description, it seems like a condition of serous otitis media which is very common after having cold. Start taking steam inhalation and anti allergic tablet. Also instill saline nasal spray in both nostrils. Don't worry, it'll get better. It will take time. May be 5-7 days more.

Some people are born with a hearing loss, is there any treatment for them? Does hearing aids are available for them?

master in audiology &speech language pathology
Audiologist, Mumbai
Hello ma'am, as you mentioned in this it called as a congenital hearing loss. Mostly this caused of any pre or perinatal complication, due to any syndrome or related to diff cause. Hearing loss in such cases are mostly very severe category where sometimes only residual hearing is remaining. As a rehabilitation point of view we as a audiologist mostly focus on early intervention, so if child is less than 3 years then it required to go for cochlear implant or hearing aid fitting. In congenital case age will be play a most imp role bcoz under 5years only child will be able to understand language & their complication. After 5years it difficult to make there language age appropriate bcoz it obvious when child heard something then only they will learn language & communicate with others. For older child with congenital hearing loss then acco to the degree of loss treatment is vary but as I mentioned earlier they've severe category of loss so as a rehabilitation point of view sign lang or other manual communication help them. To detect such child as early as possible try to arrange oae& abr screening at nicu by audiologist. Thanks.
