New book on Hearing and Balance with contributions from members
It is with great pride that I tell you about a new book that will be released this month by Mayo Clinic Press.
Mayo Clinic on Hearing and Balance, 3rd Edition https://mcpress.mayoclinic.org/shop/healthy-aging-books/mayo-clinic-on-hearing-and-balance-3rd-edition/
Here's a description of the book from its back cover:
"An estimated 466 million people worldwide have severe hearing loss. By 2050, as the population ages, this number is expected to jump to 900 million — not including the many people living with mild hearing loss. Likewise, balance is an ongoing problem for many. Millions of people have an ongoing problem with balance or experience issues with dizziness every day.
Now in its third edition, Mayo Clinic on Hearing and Balance will help you understand what causes hearing loss and balance issues, how they can be prevented, and how you can manage and live well with them.
Within this informational guide, you’ll get the answers to many common questions about hearing and balance, including how hearing and balance are tested, ways you can protect your hearing, what you can do to improve your balance, how underlying causes of hearing loss are treated, ways to cope with hearing loss and balance issues, and how to select hearing aids and cochlear implants.
You’ll also find exercises to help you assess your balance and improve it. In addition, real-life perspectives from people successfully managing hearing loss and balance issues will inspire you to take steps toward achieving better hearing and balance.
No matter what hearing or balance issues you face, this book will give you the tools and strategies to live well."
I know this last statement to be very true because members of Mayo Clinic Connect contributed their experiences and strategies which are quoted in the book. Thank you
Anyone wish to write a review of the book? 🙂

Glad to hear about the balance training. You seem to be doing whatever is necessary for your well-being. If you have reached this point in your life without hearing assistance then I think you are good for the long run. Now if we could only get you to develop an interest in good cooking….you’d be perfect!
Live long and prosper and whittle down the chocolate obsession my online friend.
Thank you for the hearing info.
Whittle down chocolate? The greatest health food on the planet? Why would I want to do that? I credit chocolate for my improved health and decreased seizures.
