Here at North Houston Hearing Solutions, we’re all about raising awareness of hearing loss and helping people understand how to better protect their hearing, as well as what to do if they suspect a hearing loss.

So, as you can imagine, I was absolutely thrilled to have been invited to talk on the Great Day TV Show to do just that! It was great to be able to share my story on what drove me to become the audiologist I am today and why I love what I do. I also discuss what hearing health care actually means, and what you can do in 2020 to ensure the longevity of your hearing.

We have our eyes checked, our blood pressure, and dental checks every year, so why don’t we include hearing tests as apart of our annual health checks?  Untreated hearing loss can lead to diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, dementia, and is also closely linked to cognitive decline and diminished spatial awareness. We are a full diagnostic clinic, so we can get to the bottom of any underlying health issues that may be caused by an untreated hearing loss.

The shocking statistics I discuss in the video reflect how hearing loss is increasing, and this doesn’t exclude the young. People are neglecting their hearing health, which consequently affects their family life, social engagements, and even their work life. Usually, by the time people come to see me with concerns about their hearing, the problem has become severe, and they now need a lot more treatment than they would’ve done if they had come to see me sooner and possibly prevented the problem.

With us being one of the only clinics in Houston to offer both 3D ear scanning, as well as cochlear implants, we’re you’re go-to hearing health care professionals. So, don’t delay; why not get 2020 off to a flying start by booking in your annual hearing test with us now. Just click here to contact us or request a callback, and one of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks for watching!
