Hi, now you r in meniere's disease, the symptoms are aural fullness, vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss and tinnitus. And you r diagnosed with bilateral severe mixed hg. Loss, ok. It is better for you to go for a digital hg. Aid in left ear, if possible use in both ear. Medications and surgery has limited benefit on meniere's disease.

Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all wot I can get from yo description you have a sensory neural type of hearing loss. If yes then medicines and healthy life style with controlled sugar n b helps in reducing the chances of further deterioration of hearing ability. So its better with medicines you just go for hearing aids, to be specific go for digital programmable hearing aids that will add on to your better lifestyle. Consult with me with your audiogram report.

First you go for complet hearing evaluation, after that you ll get to know about the type of hearing loss. If the hearing loss is more of conductive component then surgery n medication is more beneficial. If hearing loss is more of SN component then it'll be better to use hearing aid as soon as possible.

When I speak to people. They cannot hear my voice properly. They said me that you have bad sound. But in the past I was able to speak clearly but now what has happened with me. I have cough also. What should I do now?

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Audiologist, Delhi
Go for voice evaluation by an audiologist, because there is something wrong with your vocal system i. E. Infection in larynx due to which you r suffering from dry cough and voice problem, which is unpleasant for listeners. So try to talk less, drink luke-warm water, avoid throat clearing, avoid tea, coffee, too much shouting etc. For voice conservation.

To know the level of your hearing defect get Audiometry test done where you will know the exact type of deficiency and you can take appropriate remedial measures. My assumption is it will be norma and the reason for not able to hear first time is due to inattentiveness. Probably your mind is on different things and is not concentration when some body is speaking, second time when you pay attention you are able to hear because you are listening then. So change your life style and try to concentrate on the things at hand and do not allow the mind to wander. You can use some vitamin supplements for increasing your concentration capacity. Good luck.

HEARING AIDS KNOWLEDGE BANK

HEARING AIDS  KNOWLEDGE  BANK

Perhaps you've thought about getting a hearing aid, but you're worried about how it will look or whether it will really help. It may help ease your concerns to know more about:
- The hearing aid options available to you
- What to look for when buying a hearing aid
- How to get used to it
- Hearing aids can't restore normal hearing. They can improve your hearing by amplifying soft sounds, helping you hear sounds that you've had trouble hearing.

How hearing aids work

Hearing aids use the same basic parts to carry sounds from the environment into your ear and make them louder. Most hearing aids are digital, and all are powered with a hearing aid battery.

Small microphones collect sounds from the environment. A computer chip with an amplifier converts the incoming sound into digital code. It analyzes and adjusts the sound based on your hearing loss, listening needs and the level of the sounds around you. The amplified signals are then converted back into sound waves and delivered to your ears through speakers.

Hearing aid styles

Hearing aids vary a great deal in price, size, special features and the way they're placed in your ear.

The following are common hearing aid styles, beginning with the smallest, least visible in the ear. Hearing aid designers keep making smaller hearing aids to meet the demand for a hearing aid that is not very noticeable. But the smaller aids may not have the power to give you the improved hearing you may expect.

Completely in the canal (CIC) or mini CIC

A completely-in-the-canal hearing aid is molded to fit inside your ear canal. It improves mild to moderate hearing loss in adults.

A completely-in-the-canal hearing aid:
- Is the smallest and least visible type
- Is less likely to pick up wind noise
- Uses very small batteries, which have shorter life and can be difficult to handle
- Doesn't contain extra features, such as volume control or a directional microphone
- Is susceptible to earwax clogging the speaker

In the canal

An in-the-canal (itc) hearing aid is custom molded and fits partly in the ear canal. This style can improve mild to moderate hearing loss in adults.

An in-the-canal hearing aid:
- Is less visible in the ear than larger styles
- Includes features that won't fit on completely-in-the-canal aids, but may be difficult to adjust due to its small size
- Is susceptible to earwax clogging the speaker

In the ear
An in-the-ear (ITE) hearing aid is custom-made in two styles — one that fills most of the bowl-shaped area of your outer ear (full shell) and one that fills only the lower part (half shell). Both are helpful for people with mild to severe hearing loss.

An in-the-ear hearing aid:
- Includes features that don't fit on smaller style hearing aids, such as a volume control
- May be easier to handle
- Uses a larger battery for longer battery life
- Is susceptible to earwax clogging the speaker
- May pick up more wind noise than smaller devices
- Is more visible in the ear than smaller devices

Behind the ear
A behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid hooks over the top of your ear and rests behind the ear. A tube connects the hearing aid to a custom earpiece called an earmold that fits in your ear canal. This type is appropriate for people of all ages and those with almost any type of hearing loss.

A behind-the-ear hearing aid:
- Traditionally has been the largest type of hearing aid, though some newer mini designs are streamlined and barely visible
- Is capable of more amplification than are other styles
- May pick up more wind noise than other styles

Receiver in canal or receiver in the ear
The receiver-in-canal (RIC) and receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) styles are similar to a behind-the-ear hearing aid with the speaker or receiver in the canal or in the ear. A tiny wire, rather than tubing, connects the pieces.

A receiver-in-canal hearing aid:
- Has a less visible behind-the-ear portion
- Is susceptible to earwax clogging the speaker

Open fit
An open-fit hearing aid is a variation of the behind-the-ear hearing aid with a thin tube. This style keeps the ear canal very open, allowing for low-frequency sounds to enter the ear naturally and for high-frequency sounds to be amplified through the hearing aid. This makes the style a good choice for people with mild to moderate hearing loss.

An open-fit hearing aid:
- Is less visible
- Doesn't plug the ear like the small in-the-canal hearing aids do, making your own voice sound better to you
- May be more difficult to handle and adjust due to small parts.

I am using widex B32 high power hearing aids from last 10 years. Now I want to change new hearing aids. Which company' s and which model of high power aids are best?

Ph.D
Audiologist, Bangalore
To be straight forward, benefits doesn' t depend on the company. All international companies have all the models of hearing aids. Skilled programming along with the selection of right model maximizes the benefits. This may require multiple visits to the clinic. Hence consult a qualified audiologist closer to your place.

Yes, it is a genetic problem, as your family suffering from. There is no treatment for genetic disorder, but a digital programmable hearing aid can solve your problem by some extent. So get your ear checked and if the loss is sensorineural, go for hearing aid.

After menopause I have hearing loss in my right ear. Not able to hear from my right ear. Why it happened and what is the solution?

After menopause I have hearing loss in my right ear. Not able to hear from my right ear. Why it happened and what is ...
hearing loss happens due to lack of estrogen hormone, because after caesation of menopause can cause lower secretion of estrogen. Mostly hearing loss occurs in left ear after caesation of menopause of 4 years and in right ear after caesation of menopause of 5-6 yrs. In your case, loss is in right ear, normally it is due to lack of estrogen hormone. So get your ear checked and if possible take hormone therapy. There is a link between menopause and hearing loss, also aging can also play a significant role in reduced hearing, and many other causes are there for hearing loss. So avoid exposure to noisy areas, loud music etc. For better protection of your hearing. Also a healthy diet can save your hearing too.

May be air drum perforation. Consult ent even simple wax impacted inside the canal can also cause, so get it clarified and treat it at earliest.
