Hearing Loss, Tinnitus & Dementia

Tinnitus often precedes hearing loss, with nearly 90% of individuals experiencing it sooner or later. If hearing loss occurs, tinnitus typically follows. Neglecting proper care for hearing loss, such as improper use of hearing aids, can exhaust your brain’s cognitive reserve for processing sound, accelerating the clinical onset of dementia.

According to the World Health Organization, 35% of people over the age of 65 have some degree of hearing loss. More than 5% of the world’s population, or 430 million people, currently require rehabilitation, including the use of hearing aids, to address their disabling hearing loss. By 2050, it is estimated that more than 900 million people (i.e., one in ten) will suffer from disabling hearing loss.

However, less than 20% of patients currently use hearing aids. This low adoption rate could potentially accelerate the onset of dementia. The Lancet Commission Report (2020) lists hearing loss as one of the top preventable risk factors for dementia and estimates that it accounts for 8% of all-cause dementia.

A Public Health Priority

World Health Organization (WHO) in 2012 declared the prevention and treatment of dementia a public health priority.

Hearing Loss and Cognitive Decline

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), age-related hearing loss (presbycusis) is the most common type of hearing loss among older adults. It is estimated that by 2050 nearly 2.5 billion people are projected to have some degree of hearing loss and at least 700 million will require hearing rehabilitation.

 

Could hearing aids reduce cognitive decline and bring benefits to the life of persons with dementia and their families?

There is evidence to suggest that the use of hearing aids can delay cognitive decline and reduce dementia risk. Hearing loss is associated with higher risk of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and accelerated cognitive decline. However, hearing aid use is associated with lower risk of MCI and slower cognitive decline

Current Available Hearing Aids

Researchers from the University of Manchester have discovered that approximately 20% of individuals who have been prescribed hearing aids do not utilize them. There are several reasons why individuals might be reluctant to use hearing aids, even if they stand to benefit from them. These include discomfort and pain during use, financial constraints, issues with noise, aesthetic concerns, and physical complications. Low hearing aid adoption rate will accelerate the outbreak of dementia.
