Men who have hearing loss are at a 69% higher risk of developing dementia than men who do not have hearing loss.
Several studies over the years have traced hearing loss that is untreated to a rise in risks of dementia.
The reasons why hearing loss tends to increase the risks of dementia are still being researched, but there’s an unequivocal link between the two.
Men who experience hearing loss are more likely to have dementia. An Australian study revealed that men with hearing loss were 69 percent more likely to develop dementia than individuals without a hearing problem.
The good news is that getting hearing loss treated early can help prevent or delay the onset of dementia.
