Catching a hearing loss early is the best way to prevent it from worsening. The following questionnaire has been adapted from a self-assessment tool created by the American Academy of Otolaryngology. Please take the time to answer each question as accurately as possible.
Most hearing loss develops gradually, so the signs are difficult to detect. Ask yourself these questions to test how you are hearing:
Do you frequently ask people to repeat themselves?
Do you prefer to listen to the television or radio louder than others?
Do you avoid group meetings, social occasions or family gatherings where listening may be difficult?
Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice than they used to?
When you are in a group or crowded restaurant, is it difficult for you to follow the conversation?
Your answers indicate that you may be experiencing hearing loss.
Your answers to the quiz indicate that your hearing loss may be minimal.As with any medical condition, early intervention is key.
