How does hearing loss affect quality of life?
Hearing loss interferes with the ability to communicate, negatively affecting relationships, school performance, job productivity and emotional well-being. Studies indicate that even mild hearing loss has been associated with an increased risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, incidence of stroke, psychiatric illnesses, mood disorders and poor social relationships (ASHA & Better Hearing Institute).
