We’ve written before about Dr. Frank Lin, one of the world’s leading experts on hearing loss. We’ve also written about how the brain shrinks as we get older, and how hearing loss can accelerate brain shrinkage.
It was Dr. Lin and his team at Johns Hopkins that discovered this connection, leading Dr. Lin to warn that “hearing loss could be another hit on the brain in many ways,” and to make the recommendation in today’s Hearing Fact Friday.
The longer you put off getting treatment for hearing loss, the riskier it is that you’ll experience negative consequences to your mental health and wellbeing.
