An audiological evaluation is the clinical starting point for adults if you suspect hearing loss (you think your friends and family mumble), experience tinnitus (ringing buzzing, humming or other sound in your ears), perceive fullness or pressure in the ears, experience dizziness or vertigo or if there is a family history of hearing loss.
We know that patients can present with multiple etiologies of tinnitus. For example, they may have underlying tinnitus caused by presbycusis. Then they have a change in medication for an unrelated medical condition, and all of a sudden they have a pharmacological cause that has exacerbated the tinnitus. We need to be mindful that some causes can interact with each other.
HEARING AID FITTINGS
The Better Hearing Institute found that 95% of individuals with hearing loss can be helped with today’s digital hearing aids. Hearing instrument technology has improved dramatically in recent years. I can now improve communication ability for most types and severities of hearing loss; even if you have been told in the past that nothing can be done.
