Allergies striking in the fall season can sometimes lead to temporary hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
An allergy is a common autoimmune disease, which is the body’s overly aggressive response to an allergen. Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions, with six locations in New Jersey, reminds the public that up to 30 percent of American adults are affected by allergies, which can affect all three parts of the ear: outer, middle and inner.
Summer is a blast – sometimes literally.
The Fourth of July is a highlight of summer for people of all ages, bringing together friends and family for food, fun, and fireworks. Additionally, popular summer outings like concerts, parades and sporting events fill up our social calendars in the warmest months of the year.
These fun activities have a downside, however – the danger their noise levels pose to our hearing health. These events all have the potential to result in the following hearing conditions:
- Tinnitus: Ringing or other noise in the ears, which can occur suddenly or gradually.
- Temporary hearing loss: Results in a slight decrease in hearing, typically for less than 24 hours.
- Permanent hearing loss: Hearing loss that cannot be restored.
Hearing loss is a family matter, as it affects everyone who regularly communicates with the person.
May is Better Hearing Month – it’s the perfect time to accompany your hard-of-hearing family member to a meeting with a hearing healthcare professional at one of our five Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions locations in New Jersey.
A 2014 study discovered that many family members attending audiology appointments show a strong desire to be involved in the patient’s care and share their experiences of their hearing impairment. The study findings suggested the importance and need for family-centered care in audiology services.
There are several benefits to attending a hearing screening with your loved one.
Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions is hosting an open house on March 27 in the Clifton, New Jersey office, and 28 & 29 in the Paramus, New Jersey office. During this special event, our hearing instrument specialists will be demonstrating new technology.
This event is open to current patients.
For those experiencing hearing loss (treated or not), there can be some communication errors. Whether it is from not hearing someone or hearing the wrong thing entirely, ineffective communication can cause stress for both the person with hearing loss and their friends and family.
At Audiology & Hearing Aid Solutions, we want to help you maintain quality hearing and communication for you and those around you.
