The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss. That’s 5 percent of the world’s population. If you subtract the word “disabling” from the equation, there are 750 million adults with hearing loss, they say. That’s 10 percent of the adult population. However, hearing loss doesn’t have to be disabling to disrupt the quality of someone’s life.
Treating hearing loss is a wonderful thing indeed. You can experience life’s precious moments again. You will want to embrace life, not hide from it, because you won’t be missing out on special times. Also, treating hearing loss minimizes or negates negative consequences, such as related health problems.
