The incidence of hearing loss increases with age. Ear diseases and problems between the central nervous system and the auditory pathways are among the main causes of hearing loss, which is similar in almost every country. Prof. Dr. Yıldırım Ahmet Bayazıt touched upon the causes of hearing loss and drew attention to the fact that individuals with a family history of hearing loss may experience this problem starting from their 30s.
CAUSES OF HEARING LOSS MAY ALSO CHRONIC DISEASES!
Prof. Dr. Stating that some diseases in the body can cause hearing loss by affecting the hearing system indirectly, Bayazıt said:
Pointing out that neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), blood diseases such as leukemia, endocrine and metabolic diseases such as diabetes and rheumatism may also be the cause of hearing loss. Dr. Yıldırım Ahmet Bayazıt added that individuals suspected of hearing loss should definitely consult an ENT specialist. “After the tests performed with simple examinations and tests, the treatment of hearing loss can be done according to the patient’s condition. Bayazıt said that with the application of hearing aids or hearing implants in cases of advanced loss, the patient can regain hearing ability, ”said Bayazıt, and said that there is no age limit for implanting in adults who lost their hearing later. However, he emphasized that the implant procedure should be done as soon as possible after hearing loss occurs, otherwise the efficiency of the implant may be low or the adaptation of the person to the auditory implant may be difficult.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HEARING LOSS AND DEMANCE IS DETERMINED!
Emphasizing that untreated hearing losses start to cause psychological and social problems in the person and his / her immediate environment, Dr. Bayazıt stated that in these people who started to be isolated from the society, depression started and the person’s communication skills and learning ability started to decrease. Stating that there is a relationship between untreated hearing loss and early dementia (dementia), Dr. Bayazıt pointed out that when hearing loss is detected, it is critical to visit an ENT specialist without wasting time.
