Recognise the signs of hearing loss
Hearing loss is often a gradual process as part of natural ageing but it can also occur at any age and be caused by various factors. As many as 1 in 6 people are estimated to suffer from hearing loss. Being in noisy environments, listening to loud music and using loud tools such as drills, mowers and even hoovers can, overtime, lead to noise-induced hearing loss. Other factors that can cause hearing loss include illness-related hearing loss, trauma and some types of medications that have been linked to hearing loss.
