Hearing Loss Causes Brain Shrinkage/Decreased Speech Recognition

Older Americans with hearing loss have been found to lose brain tissue faster than those who do not have hearing loss.

If you don’t use it, you lose it. Over time, people with hearing loss have an increasingly difficult time understanding sounds such as S, T, and P. However, hearing aids help to improve speech comprehension and overall communication with friends and family. This means they give you the ability to “use it,” increasing your communication frequency and clarity to keep your brain in good shape and prevent it from losing the ability to recognize speech over the long term.
