Study: Millions Need Hearing Aid Devices

Health leaders are encouraging anyone who suffers from hearing loss to seek help. As many as 23 million people could benefit from using hearing aid devices, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

“Understanding current rates of hearing loss treatment is important, as evidence is beginning to surface that hearing loss is associated with poorer cognitive functioning and the risk of dementia,” said Dr. Frank Lin, the study’s senior investigator, in a news release from John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
