What age does hearing loss start?

Hearing loss can occur at any age, but it is most common in older adults. In Canada, one in three people over the age of 65 has some form of hearing loss. Hearing loss can also be caused by exposure to loud noise, certain medications, and certain health conditions. If you think you or someone you know may have hearing loss, it is important to see an audiologist for a hearing test at Melody Audiology.

Contrary to common belief, hearing loss can occur at any age. While it is more prevalent in older adults, hearing loss can affect individuals of any age, including children and young adults. Hearing loss in children may be caused by genetics, infections, or exposure to loud noises, while in young adults, it may be caused by exposure to loud music, occupational noise exposure, or head injuries. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical in managing hearing loss, regardless of age. By seeking hearing services and taking preventative measures, such as wearing ear protection in noisy environments, individuals can help prevent hearing loss or minimize the effects of existing hearing loss.
