My dad is having hearing disorder. From one ear, he can't hear anything but from the second one, doc says that a machine can be used. My question is, is the hearing impairment machine the only solution for long term (can some medication or alternative treatment help)? I'm trying to find an alternative to hearing aid, as I assume that if someone is using hearing aid then over long term his ear can't improve, it will only deteriorate further. Please correct me.

You go for 6 channels hearing aid it will improve your daddy's hearing sensitivity like small sounds also can able to identify easily but very expensive. Hearing aid is the only management for hearing loss.

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.

I am having trouble in hearing. I am only 45 can I have hearing problem in this age. I am not that old. Can this be because I have to communicate on headphones due to my work.

Hello, there is no age limit for hearing loss, it can affect anybody irrespective of age, gender, race, religion etc. As you mentioned you r talking to people through headphones, which can one of the main reason for hearing loss, because continuous use of headphones leads to temporary hearing loss and eardrum rupture, so try to avoid or maintain a gap between use of headphone for air ventilation and protection of hearing mechanism.

No it cannot be improved. He might have high frequency hearing loss. You need to show his report to me. As with mild hearing loss deciphering words is not an issue.

You should consult an audiologist for hearing aids. Generally the good devices are of programmable type. Your grandpa need to undergo hearing evaluation and hearing aid programming by an audiologist.

Hi, if you are suffering from nerve weakness of ear since last 2-3 years and your hearing threshold is 45db, it is better for you to go for a digital hearing aid accordingly by your hearing loss, because there is almost no solution for nerve related hearing loss, except a hearing aid. Also, medicine and surgery has no such effect on nerve related problem.

My question is from ENT Surgeon, I had my surgery of a right ear, as there was a fungal infection in my ear due to which some type of bone was damaged in my ear, that was replaced in a surgery. Its been 12 years till now, but as the time is increasing, my hearing power is getting lower of my right ear. Infact, now my hearing power is almost nil. What should I do? I am now afraid of going for surgery again. Is there any treatment, or some meditation, that can help me cure this problem?

Hi dear, my advice to you was to do your audiometry check up first, then the audiologist will tell you a better treatment option for you. The bone removed was mastoid bone due to infection, so do not go for another surgery. It may lead to serious complications.

7 Tips to Safeguard Your Hearing

7 Tips to Safeguard 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 reason 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 smoke: Smoking 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.
