What causes noise-induced hearing loss?
Hello, My grandfather is 60 years old and suffering from noise-induced hearing loss. He has been provided a hearing aid that will help him in hearing. He never had trouble listening but since last week he had trouble so we decided to take the doctor’s help. Doctors said he is suffering from noise-induced hearing loss. Can anyone tell me what is and what causes noise-induced hearing loss?
@yaiza Hello, Noise-induced hearing loss is permanent hearing loss that is caused by being around loud noises over a long period of time. Noise-induced hearing loss is caused by an intense sound or by continuous exposure to loud sounds over an extended period of time. Loud noises can damage our hearing. Frequent exposure to loud or moderately loud noise over a long period of time can damage the soft tissue of the inner ear. Cells and nerves in the inner ear are destroyed by continuous or repeated exposure to loud sounds. If enough cells and nerves are destroyed, hearing is permanently damaged.
