My bro has duff (46%) from child hood. When we consult to a doctor at his childhood. Doctor says, he was very weak so it happened. He will recover when he grow up. And also he can not talk normally. Some words are cannot spoke by him. He can not hear from some far also. But he understands by lip reading. We already tried hearing machine at cost 30000. Is there any cure of that duff and talking clearly by any operation. My bro age is now 17 running. please doctor give any suggestion. We are suffering for him very much.

Hope while he was fitted with hearing aids, you have done the speech therapy. If not then you can try it now. But best results. Only obtained during the crucial age of speech language development.(3-5 years). Start speech therapy soon. This will help a bit.

My mother has high blood pressure for years, more than 10 years and she has to take medicine[prescribed at the polyclinic] daily to control the pressure from increasing, thing is if she skip the medicine, the reading does goes up and sometimes she skip the medicine taking with intention as she strongly believe long period consumption of'western' medicine is detrimental to one's body organs. So she prefer non-medication method from hear-say basis, like consuming certain vegetables, is there truth in this non-medication approach? How do we manage hypertension? Is medication the only option? And is it true that with hypertension, getting work-up, angry, excited must be avoided at all means because this will lead to heart attack?

Does she wear spects for weak eye sight. Tv programmes claim to'cure' eyesight! does it ever happen? eye power keep fluctuating with age and in growing up kids, may be gets corrected but not in seniors. Tell her medicines for high bp, besides lowering the bp, also protect the heart. Vegetables and fruits are good but cannot lower bp once it has been recorded on a higher level - 120/80 is safe, 130/85 is borderline-no medicines, just reduce the salt, above 130/85 some safe medicines like beta blockers are given to reduce the risk of heart attack & stroke. Yes she has to keep her cool.

Causes of Hearing Loss in Hindi - बहरेपन का कारण

Causes of Hearing Loss in Hindi - बहरेपन का कारण

हमारे लिए कान का महत्व काफी ज्यादा है. हलांकि कई लोग ऐसे भी जिनके पास ये विकल्प नहीं है. कुछ लोगों को प्राकृतिक रु से सुनने की क्षमता होती है और कुछ लोग अपनी गलतियों या अन्य कारणों की वजह से सुनने की क्षमता खो बैठते हैं. बहुत हल्के से शुरू होकर सुनने की समस्या धीरे-धीरे यह बहरेपन जैसी गंभीर समस्या बन जाती है. कम सुनाई देना या बिल्कुल भी सुनाई न देना बहरापन कहलाता है. सुनने में परेशानी का मतलब है किसी के द्वारा कुछ भी बोले जाने पर स्पष्ट रूप से समझने में सक्षम ना हो पाना. बहरापन सुनने की समस्या का सबसे उच्च स्तर है. ऐसे लाखों लोग हैं जो बहरेपन से पीड़ित हैं. सुनने की शक्ति ईश्वर द्वारा दिया गया विभिन्न जीवों को एक उपहार है. इसलिए हमें खुद को शिक्षित करना चाहिए कि बहरेपन के क्या कारण हो सकते हैं. इससे उपचार के विकल्पों को चुनने में भी मदद मिलेगी. सुनने में परेशानी के कई कारण हो सकते हैं उम्र बढ़ने के साथ सुनने में समस्या होना स्वाभाविक बात है. कभी-कभी अचानक हुई घटना के कारण भी सुनने में दिक्कत हो सकती है. आइए बहरेपन के कारणों को जानें.

1. आघात
आम तौर पर कई बार परिस्थितियां ऐसी बनती है कि किसी दुर्घटना की वजह से भी बहरेपन की समस्या हो सकती है. अचानक आघात जो सिर या कान की चोट से जुड़ा होता है उससे सुनवाई संबंधी हानि हो सकती है. कुछ लोगों को अचानक से सुनने में कमी का भी अनुभव होता है. इसलिए हमेशा पटाखों और अन्य कई ऐसी चीजों से दूर रहना चाहिए जिससे आपको इस परेशानी का सामना नहीं करना पड़े.
2. आनुवांशिकी
बहरेपन के कई कारणों में से एक ये भी है कि जहां माता-पिता को सुनने में परेशानी होती है वहाँ उनके बच्चों में भी बहरेपन की समस्या हो जाती है. ऐसे व्यक्तियों को बहरेपन या सुनने में परेशानी होती है जो उम्र के साथ ओर भी खराब हो सकती है. ये जन्मजात बहरापन हो जाता है. इसे न तो रोका जा सकता  है और न ही इसका इलाज करके ठीक किया जा सकता है.
3. दवाईयों का असर
दवाइयों के साइड इस्फेक्त कई बार ऐसे होते हैं जो हमें कई तरह की परेशानियों में डाल देते हैं. मधुमेह, उच्च रक्तचाप, एड्स और कुछ दिल और न्यूरोलॉजिकल रोग जैसे कुछ स्वास्थ्य विकारों से भी सुनने की क्षमता पर प्रभाव पड़ता है. इसके अलावा, कुछ एंटीबायोटिक दवाईयाँ और अन्य दवाईयाँ जैसे कीमोथेरेपी दवा भी कम सुनने के नुकसान का कारण बन सकती हैं. कान के संक्रमण से भी सुनने में परेशानी हो सकती है. कभी-कभी कान में बहुत अधिक मोम का संचय होता है जो अनुचित सुनवाई का कारण बन सकता है. शराब और तंबाकू का अत्यधिक सेवन हानिकारक है और प्रत्यक्ष या अप्रत्यक्ष रूप से यह सुनने की समस्या में शामिल किया जा सकता है.
4. बढ़ती उम्र का असर
ये एक नैचुरल कारण है. इस प्रक्रिया से सबको गुजरना पड़ता है. बढ़ते उम्र के साथ हमारे शरीर के कई अंग काम करना बंद कर देते हैं. आपने शायद यह देखा होगा कि कैसे आपके दादा-दादी को सुनने वाली मशीन के बिना सुनने में कितनी परेशानी होती है. कान के कुछ हिस्सों की क्षति के कारण उम्र से संबंधित बहरापन होना स्वाभाविक है. इस प्रकार का बहरापन काफी आम है.
5. अत्यधिक शोर
हमारे कानों के सुनने की एक निश्चित सीमा होती है. यदि आप इस सिया से बाहर जाएंगे तो आपको कई तरह की परेशानियाँ झेलनी पड़ सकती हैं. निरंतर और लंबे समय तक अत्यधिक शोर के संपर्क में रहने से धीरे-धीरे सुनने में परेशानी हो सकती है. यह बहरेपन की एक शुरुआत हो सकती है. बिना किसी सुरक्षा विकल्प के लंबे समय तक अत्यधिक शोर में रहने से कान को बहुत नुकसान हो सकता है.

Tinnitus is a common problem usually associated with deafness. It is of two types, subjective and objective. In objective tinnitus you can find out the cause of tinnitus while in subjective it is difficult to find the cause. Treatment consisit of reassurance and certain vasodilator and vitamin treatment. In objective tinnitus you may require surgery if cause is confirmed by all mod of diagnosis including ct scan.

I seem to have some tenderness under the right ear lobe and behind the ear. I have done an audiometry test few years back and was told that I cannot hear noises in the higher frequency. Could it be because of that? is it anything to be worried?

High frequency loss does not cause much problems. But you need to under go serial audigrams to look for progression.

Is audiometric test is mandatory to get hearing aid. My left ear get blocked at times, my gp has prescribed wax cleaning liquid it was ok for a few weeks again the same problem. While cleaning my ears with cotton buds I have observed that my left ear has more wax content than the right one. My hearing from left ear is little feeble, especially while I am talking or receiving call on my cell phone. Please advise. Thanks.

Yes. Audiometry is compulsary. It will tell you exactly that you are having hearing loss or not. Consult ent specialist //for cleaning-wax removal. Your symptoms can also be due to nasal congestion.

It seems that the nerve is already damaged beyond recovery and can take tablet folvite once a day and wait and watch and it's better to use a hearing aid
