Top Reasons Why Your Hearing Fades Birthdays: Research shows that for every 10 years of age, a 2.5 dB to 18 dB decrease in hearing can be expected. For men, this can begin as early as the age of 30 years, whereas for women, it typically begins near the age of 50. Noise exposure: Working in a loud environment such as a factory, construction, or the military can cause hearing loss. Also, exposure to excessive noise during activities such as concerts, hunting, and recreational vehicles (boats, wave runners, motorcycles) can cause damage to the inner ear. Consistent use of protection during these activities is recommended. Medical causes: Various medical conditions such as Meniereâ€™s disease, otosclerosis, acoustic neuroma, cholesteatoma, infection, and poor blood supply to the ear require medical treatment. Smoking: Adults who smoke are more likely to experience problems compared to adults that do not smoke. Yet another reason to quit! Diabetes: If you suffer from Diabetes, you should be evaluated on a regular basis due to the increased risk.
