Mon, Mar 11 7:05pm · Has anyone seen a audiologist at Mayo clinic in Hearing Loss

She definitely has hearing in both ears. One is better than the other. Her hearing loss has been going on for 2 – 3 years now. We both were widows for 15 – 17 years and married 6 years ago. Her hearing was reasonable good 6 years ago. @jamienolson

Tue, Mar 5 9:45am · Hearing Loss: Come introduce yourself and connect with others in Hearing Loss

Dear Colleen: I just recently connected to the hearing loss group. Today I sent a reply to Jamie Olson a Mayo moderator. My questions are about testing and when to see an audiologist and when to see an otologist. Also if Mayo has a recommended clinic in Indianapolis that has both an audiologist and an otologist. I will be looking for a response from Jamie or perhaps from you.

Tue, Mar 5 8:52am · Has anyone seen a audiologist at Mayo clinic in Hearing Loss

Hello: I made the connection to the hearing loss group because my wife does not hear all that well. Just recently I got her to accept the idea that I would get her a hearing aid for Christmas 2019. I am very proactive about health care and I have taken family to Mayo with amazing results. So I need to educate myself about hearing loss and treatment. You mentioned Audiologist and Otologist. Is the Otologist an MD? My wife's situation is she had an ear infection which the MD forty years ago said to keep cotton in your ear until the infection is gone. Wrong treatment she learned later after having hearing loss. So my question is does one see the Audiologist first and then see the Otologist if appropriate? Does one attempt to see the Otologist first? I am thinking at the very least a person needs to go to a hearing loss clinic that has both the Audiologist and the Otologist. We live near Indianapolis Indiana. Do you know or does Mayo have a recommendation for a clinic in the area? Your help would be appreciated.

I will not be able to watch this video as I will not be near a computer. Can I see it later? My cholesterol is great. I stopped taking Lipitor 5 mg daily May 2018 and I have been feeling great. But I would like to more. My cardiologist says there is no number below which you can stop taking a statin. I have also been taking aspirin (81mg) 3 days a week for several years. I will be seeing my primary care doctor this week and my cardiologist in April. I have acid reflux so I do not eat ice cream, cheese, animal fat that will increase your cholesterol
