Save Your Hearing Day

Your hearing is one of your greatest assets. If you lose it, you may not be able to get it back.

Save Your Hearing Day falls on the 31st of May each year. It serves as a reminder that hearing loss is an affliction that effects millions of people around the world and it does not discriminate against anyone. You may lose part of your ability to hear or you may become totally deaf.

The loss of hearing can come on suddenly or it can happen over a long period of time without you knowing it until one day you realize you are having problems hearing things that are going on around you.

Hearing loss is linked to several things including age, illness, noise, traumatic experiences, side effects to medicines, neurological disorders, and it can result from genetic traits that are passed down from generation to generation.

Many children are born with limited hearing or they may lose it as they grow older. Premature babies are more at risk because their auditory system may not fully develop. Childhood diseases such as rubella, herpes, measles, maternal diabetes, toxemia, cytomegalovirus, and otitis media can cause hearing loss in infants and young children.

Many people take their hearing for granted, especially when they are young. They don't take regular hearing tests to determine if their hearing is deteriorating and they fail to wear proper ear protection while working in noisy conditions.

As you get older, the chances for hearing loss becomes more prevalent and with each passing year, it becomes more likely that you will suffer loss of hearing in one degree or another.

Loud noise is one of the greatest causes of hearing loss. Although you can't always wear earmuffs or earplugs, you can control the amount of time you spend in loud environments. If you listen to loud music, you can turn down the volume and listen to it for shorter periods of time.

Save Your Hearing Day is an opportunity to learn safe hearing practices and how damage to your hearing can be avoided. Estimates show that up to half of the cases of hearing loss is preventable.

You should never take your hearing for granted. It is one of your best assets. If you lose it, you may not be able to get it back.
