Modern hearing aids have embraced technology like seemingly every other device, becoming smaller, smarter, greener and better. Consider these ways the listening devices are making life more enjoyable and easier for those of us with hearing loss.

earache tinnitusTinnitus is a common occurrence, affecting over 50 million people.  The symptoms and severity can vary person to person, as well as the triggers. 

Your diet can affect your tinnitus symptoms; here are some food triggers to be aware of.

Trans and Saturated Fats

Eating a diet high in trans-fats and saturated fats have been linked to heightened tinnitus symptoms.  The consumptions of these fats contribute to cholesterol issues, as well as reducing blood flow.  The reduced blood flow can restrict the function of the ears.

 hearing aidThe internet has made it easy to buy virtually anything online; but just because an item is available online, it doesn’t mean that’s how you should buy it. This is especially true with hearing aids.

Online hearing aids may be less expensive but they also may just be amplifying sound. Unlike getting hearing aids in an audiologist’s office, they are not adjusted to address your specific type of hearing loss.

In addition, a one-on-one explanation of the use and care of the hearing aids is always a better option. And what happens when you do need help, you may have to find a specialist and pay for your services.
