The Doctors share that nearly 27 million Americans age 50 and older have hearing loss, but only 1 in 7 of those people use a hearing aid.

Ear, nose, throat specialist Dr. Andrew Ordon shares some surprising signs that you or a loved one may be experiencing hearing loss and share tips on what to do.

Loss of Balance: Dr. Ordon explains that changes in the inner ear can affect someone's balance and can cause stumbling, as well as hearing loss. He recommends having your hearing checked, especially for the elderly population.

Ringing in the ear: Dr. Ordon says a ringing in the ear is a sign or symptom of a possible problem in the inner ear. He explains this can be a part of aging, and that certain medications can cause ringing. 

Unable to hear high frequencies: Dr. Ordon explains it is possible to lose the ability to hear high-frequency tones, like the speaking voices of women and children. 

The Doctors explain that hearing aids allow the user to turn up certain frequencies and they suggest if you are experiencing age-related hearing loss to look into getting a hearing aid. One option is Ovation Hearing, which offers the Excel hearing aid, which can be tailored to the user's specific needs.
