I am 34 years male. I am suffering with hearing loss (40% (R)& 45%(L)) in both ears for last 6 months. After audiometry and impedance test, I was said that my stapes bone inside the ear has been grown. I have been suggested for ear operation to replace this bone. Also recently I have started the tinnitus. But I do not want to go for operation as this being complex and near to inner ear. Another reason is non-availability of good surgeon in my area. I have started sodium fluoride tablets just to prevent further hearing loss and some yoga exercise. I may go for hearing aid as well. Please suggest if any food supplements or preventions to decrease the tinnitus. Thanks,

as you r having hearing loss and tinnitus simultaneously. Best way is to go for surgery (stapedectomy). If you do not want to go for surgery then 2 nd option is to go for digital programmable hearing aids having specific program for tinnitus management. No any yoga or exercise helps in recovery from hearing loss but ya for tinnitus you can try. Coz in yo case the condition is excess calcium deposition in stapes bone restricting its mobility you can read the health tips (tinnitus management) shared by me in lybrate. & for any more query you can get in touch with me.

Hi consult a speech therapist near by you. Go through the complete speech and language evaluation. Then and only your speech therapist can guide you what to do for your baby. If he is suffering from any associated disorder with speech delay (means speech language development is not age appropriate) then go through speech therapy, it will definitely help him.

Hi, I would like to know the pure tone audiometry report. If you do not have any discharging ear and going by the suggestion of the other ent surgeon you must be having what we call as otosclerosis. You have two options. One is hearing aid and the other one is stepedotomy surgery. You may contact me for either of these.

Dr. Sir, I suffer from profound Hearing loss. I am Male 68 yrs, Veg, 74 Kgs, Non Smoker. My Doctor advised me to take "High Res CT Scan Temporal Bone (Bilateral) Does this give only the cause/source for Hearing loss OR does it give any other problems (not related to Hearing) also. OR can we include some other tests also, to check if there are any other problems. Please clarify.

Hrct of temporal bones will be helpful in determining cause of hearing loss, if there are is any tumor in the temporal bone or auditory nerve, any structural abnormality or trauma. Other tests like audiometry also need to be done.

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.

Hello, you recently got tinnitus problem in both ear, and your audiogram suggests mild cond. Hg. Loss, ok. Tinnitus may be seen in normal individuals and patients with hearing loss and its actual cause is unknown. Chronic noise exposure plays a vital role in tinnitus problem. It can only be prevented by relaxation therapy, living stress free whole day, you can also listen to slow music to reduce your perception of tinnitus sound etc.

Hearing - 7 Tips to Safeguard it!

Hearing - 7 Tips to Safeguard it!

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.

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'm a 14 year old female who was diagnosed with Otosclerosis. If I have mild hearing loss in my left ear how long do you think it will take for me to go completely deaf in one ear? And also a stapedectomy was recommend as a surgical treatment if I wanted it by my ENT specialist. She told me that it.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User....before Stapedectomy you can try Homoepathic THIOSINAMAN 200, 5 drops in a cup of water early morning before brushing your teeth along with Homoeopathic FERRUM PIC 6X tablets, 4 tablets, thrice daily for at least 1 month....this combination has effectively increased the level of hearing in some cases of deafness due to otosclerosis in my experience

Dear lybrate-user, Hearing machine, also called as Hearing Aid, works for a person depending on the following: 1. Hearing loss, 2. Type of hearing loss 3. Need for hearing - situations in which the person communicates Based on proper testing and trial of hearing aids, you will be able to decide on what kind of hearing aids will be suitable. You can not buy it as any product unless it is tried to be fit for hearing.
