Reducing Dementia Risk
Our Team Is Here for You
Individuals with hearing loss are at an increased risk for developing cognitive decline and dementia. While your risk increases with the degree of hearing loss, it is important to note that even mild hearing loss can increase your risk by as much as 200%! If you or a loved one struggles to hear clearly, our New York City, and Queens, NY, hearing doctors can help.
Call The Advanced Hearing Center if You Struggle With Any of the Following…
- Difficulty hearing when there is background noise
- TV or radio needs to be louder for you than for your spouse or family
- Trouble following a conversation in the car
- A common need to ask others to repeat themselves
Whether you suffer from slight or significant hearing loss, your cognitive abilities are likely to be adversely affected. A medical study from Johns Hopkins demonstrated that untreated hearing loss increases the risk of developing dementia by 200% to 500%.
There is hope, however! According to recent evidence from Columbia University, today’s leading treatment options for restoring hearing can help to slow down or prevent the development of dementia.
