Hearing Loss Related to Early Death

Your Health Minute

Hearing loss can be related to an early death.

In Your Health Minute,

A recent study suggests hearing loss may increase the risk of early death especially among those who live alone.

Researchers from Columbus University looked at data from over 50-thousand older adults living in Norway.

They found seniors with spouses or partners had a lower risk of death due to hearing loss than those who were single.

Experts say family members were more likely to suggest hearing aids and other important health services.
