Late-deafened people are those who have lost their hearing later on in life. Hearing loss can be gradual over a few years due to age, hereditary, specific medications, and high fever. Some people have experienced sudden deafness by trauma or surgery.
Sixty percent of veterans returning from the war have experienced Late-Deafness and tinnitus (ringing in the ear).
It takes seven or more years for some people to admit they have a hearing loss before getting their ears checked. Unchecked hearing loss can lead to early dementia.
Untreated hearing loss can have severe effects on a person’s health. Left unchecked, it can even speed the process of cognitive decline. If the area of the brain used for hearing is not functioning at capacity, then other functions are likely to take over that part of the brain.
Individuals receiving a distorted audio signal often see a faster rate of cognitive decline, and this can contribute to the dementia process in some patients.
