Hearing Specialists of DuPage is pleased to announce a new study has revealed hearing aids can help reduce the risk of dementia, among other health benefits. A study published by the Journal of American Geriatrics Society revealed correcting hearing issues with hearing aids can help reduce the risk of developing dementia, as well as reduces depression and the risk of falls.
The study was completed at the University of Michigan Institute for Health Policy and Innovation and took a look at around 115,000 individuals aged 66 and over. The scientists looked at the medical health of the participants starting one year prior to their hearing loss diagnosis and followed them for three years afterward. Those who participated in the study were noted to have an 18% lower risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer’s, when they wore hearing aids. It’s thought one of the primary contributing factors to this is the fact many people isolate themselves socially when they are unable to hear well. The hearing aids eliminate this factor.
Hearing Specialists of DuPage take great pride in providing their patients with the hearing solutions they need to improve this aspect of their lives. With all of the services offered, they are able to identify the source of hearing loss and help patients find the ideal solution for their needs.
