Middle-aged bodies don’t behave, feel, or recover like before. But if you live to be 85, you’ll probably happily accept some hearing loss along with it as a trade-off. The chances of hearing loss do increase with age.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, hearing loss affects 4 out of every 5 adults 85 and older. In the next 40 years, they say, the U.S. population of individuals older than 80 is expected to double. That’s a lot of people with hearing loss. But you can increase the quality of your life and keep your health on track with hearing aids.
