I have hearing loss problem and using hearing aid from last 25 years. How I can improve my hearing capacity ?

Hearing loss can be conductive and sensorineural, or conductive hearing loss there are options available but sensorineural hearing loss is irreversible. Get a pure tone audiometry done and review with reports to nearby ENT specialist.

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.

I am experiencing some buzzing and (or) ringing sound in my ear. Earlier I was diagnosed with serious otitis media and now this situation persists. Am I suffering from tinnitus or it will fade with time?

BMLT,BASLP.
Audiologist, Cuttack
Hello, now you r in chronic serous otitis media means fluid in the middle ear with tinnitus. Remember tinnitus or ringing sound may happens due to impacted wax against eardrum, inner ear disorder, otosclerosis, chronic noise exposure etc. Sometimes tinnitus fades away or sometimes lasts long, so get an ent consultation for otitis media and for tinnitus it is better for you to avoid noisy places, use slow music against ringing sound, feel relax all the time by avoiding such sounds, avoid caffeinated products like chocolate, cola, tea, alcohol.

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.

Dear lybrate user if you r having sensorineural type of hearing loss no medicines will help to restore the hearing loss. Only in sudden hearing loss steroids help to some extent. So in your case the option left for you is digital programmable hearing aids. Most probably you have used analog one, go for digital programmable hearing aids. It will help for sure. Consult with me for further details.

First step is to get an ent checkup next to get a hearing test done and it is the audiologist who will try different hearing aida and then take your earcanal size and fit the hearing aids according to your response. Now if the dealers have employed an audiologist it may be a part of their business.

I am 20 years old and have hear problem. We face a problem to less hear in my head. Although its not a hair fall but less hair is my problem.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In general, you lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day, but the loss is not visible as new hair grow in their place. However, if you lose more than a 100 strands in a day and more than 200 strands on the day you shampoo, you may be suffering from what is known as excessive hair fall. Certain factors or reasons may cause you to lose hair at an alarming rate, which are, 1. Thyroid problems Your thyroid is responsible for your body’s overall functioning. The hormones (primarily T4 and T3), which it produces help in regulating metabolic activities. Problems with your thyroid gland can cause your hormone levels to rise or fall to unhealthy levels, which can result in hair fall. You can improve the functioning of your thyroid gland through a diet rich in calcium, iodine, magnesium, protein and Vitamins A, B and C. 2. Scalp infections-Infections of the scalp can also be one of the factors that may cause your hair to fall at an alarming rate. Of the different scalp infections, the ringworm scalp infection is the most common. Although this fungal infection can occur in any part of your body, when it develops on your scalp, you end up losing clumps of hair. Alongside the use of anti-fungal medications, even anti-fungal shampoos and creams can provide you with respite from the problem. 3. Poor diet, Gorging on unhealthy foods or going on a crash diet can result in the lack of essential nutrients in your body, which are required to maintain healthy hair. Furthermore, since hair is made of protein, having a balanced diet consisting of proteins and vitamin- rich foods is a must. 4. Stress gives rise to certain conditions such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium (hair loss caused post-pregnancy or surgery) and trichotillomania (an impulsive need to pull your hair out), which can cause you to lose significant amount of hair. To avert a hair loss crisis caused by stress, make it a point to do some simple stress-reducing exercises, such as meditation or breathing exercises. 5. Using hair styling products like hair colours and straighteners can cause you to experience hair fall problems. Your hair not only becomes dull and dry due to their use, but also becomes weak and brittle, leading to a gradual loss of hair. Regular oiling and use of homemade hair masks are some of the ways you can try to counter the negative effects of these hair styling products. 6. The drugs that are used in the treatment of cancer not only destroy the fast-growing cancer cells, but also the healthy blood cells in your body. For this reason, consuming foods that possess cancer-fighting properties (like oatmeal, tomato, almonds, garlic etc) is a sure-shot way of fighting the disease as well as averting any side-effects that may arise because of the treatment. 7. Alopecia areata. Lastly, hair fall can also be caused by alopecia areata, which is a kind of hair loss that takes place when your body’s immune system erroneously attacks your hair follicles, and prevents growth of new hair. 8. Genetics. The origin of your severe hair fall or baldness can be traced back to your ancestors. So, your genes can be a factor behind your hair fall problem. If this is the cause, your body then becomes unable to produce new hair. Apart from the changes that you can make in your lifestyle to address the causes of your hair fall, there are also techniques out there that you can employ to permanently treat your problem, such as platelet rich plasma, mesotherapy, stem cell therapy, ozone activated platelet rich plasma & hair transplant.
