Adjusting to a Hearing Aid

Friday, September 26th, 2008

Adjusting to a hearing aid, for many people, may be an uncomfortable process. Louder sounds take some getting used to, but eventually adjusting to a hearing aid will be a thing of the past for you as you enjoy louder hearing.

Tips for Adjusting to a Hearing Aid

Recently the Minnesota Department of Human Services released some tips for adjusting to a hearing aid. They suggest that you start out by wearing your hearing aid just at home, taking note of the sounds you can now hear because of the new hearing aid. Next, they suggest gradually adding more sound sources. Some examples of sound sources can be the radio, TV or even a conversation. It’s important to note that this step of adjusting to a hearing aid should still happen at your home. You can extend the amount of time you wear your hearing aid gradually, so long as it feels comfortable. Remember that it’s perfectly normal to need to adjust the volume frequently, and you may even need to eventually visit your doctor or audiologist to have your hearing aid adjusted. After several weeks of adjusting to a hearing aid, rest assured that sounds should begin to feel natural.

Adjusting to a Hearing Aid Takes Time

As the saying goes, “All good things come to those who wait.” That’s certainly true for adjusting to a hearing aid. While it may take several weeks for sounds to feel natural, it will certainly be worth the wait to enjoy louder, sharper hearing from your new hearing aid.

After Adjusting to a Hearing Aid

After adjusting to a hearing aid, you’ll notice that sounds are enhanced and you can hear better. It may be surprising to you to hear things so loudly and clearly. After all, hearing loss is gradual, so you likely grew unaccustomed to sounds like background conversations and the hum of the refrigerator. One thing that’s important to remember after adjusting to a hearing aid is that a hearing aid will not completely restore your hearing.

Hearing Aids from Drugstore & Internet May Cause Harm

Hearing Aids that are Improperly Fitted can do More Harm

Hearing aids can actually do more harm than good if they are fitted properly to a person’s ear or tuned to a person’s specific hearing loss, according to an article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press.

Hearing Aids Should be Fitted and Tuned

Michigan State University audiology student, Susanna Callaway, performed a study on Internet and drugstore hearing devices.  What she found is that the inexpensive hearing aids didn’t work on at least three of the types of sound loss that she was testing.  Nor did the less expensive hearing aids, which she purchased for under $100, reduce loud noises.  The non-reduction of loud noise by the hearing aid could actually make hearing loss worse, or even damage healthy hearing.

Callaway’s findings on over-the-counter hearing devices, which aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, appeared in the June issue of American Journal of Audiology.

Hearing Aids are Needed by Most Older Adults

Unfortunately for a lot of Americans, the cheaper drugstore and Internet hearing aids are their only option.  Most insurance companies view hearing loss as the normal process of aging so they don’t cover hearing aids, nor does Medicare.  According the article by Megha Satyanarayana, most people start to lose their hearing by age 60.  This means by 80 years of age, most people could use some form of a hearing aid.

Hearing Aids Made Affordable

In an effort to help make hearing devices more affordable and to insure that people are getting properly fitted and tuned hearing devices, HearingAidExpress.com has taken as many measures as possible to offer the lowest prices for their clients.  HearingAidExpress operates their own manufacturing and repair labs, as well as dropping their prices to the public when they get discounts from manufacturers.   We also offer financing for those hearing aid customers that may need it.
