Hearing loss happens for different reasons and can affect people of any age. Hearing loss that occurs gradually as you age is most common and almost half the people in the United States older than age 65 have some degree of hearing loss.

You can’t reverse most types of hearing loss. However, you and your doctor or a hearing specialist can take steps to improve what you hear. On this episode of  Wellness Matters, Dr. Syed and his guests will look at the different types of hearing loss, prevention measures, hearing aid options and the Ball State Audiology clinic, a great local resource.
