What Causes Hearing Loss?
Ed Wagner Founder/CEO Blue Echo Care
Whether it’s hearing the voices of your loved ones or watching the newest episode of your favorite TV show, hearing loss can affect all aspects of life from the most routine moments (like being able to hear your alarm going off in the morning) to the most important (Spoiler Alert: like when Daenerys finally finds her dragons). Our team has gathered some helpful tips below about hearing loss and ways to combat it over time.
There are 2 main types of hearing loss: Sensorineural and Conductive.
- -Excessive noise exposure
- -Viral infections (such as measles or mumps)
- -Ototoxic drugs (medications that damage hearing)
- -Wax buildup
- -Foreign object in the ear canal
While many of the symptoms of sensorineural hearing loss like aging and disease can be unavoidable at times, conductive hearing loss can often be resolved with preventative care and cleansing of the ears. If you suffer from conductive hearing loss brought on by wax build up, our Cleanse Right Ear Wax Removal Kits can help.
