Oct 6, 2019 · Diet and hearing loss in Hearing Loss

thank you for posting these- it is unfortunate that so little is written on the topic -the hearing health article is a copy of the NIH one – good info, just wish there was more research done and more data. much appreciated

Aug 22, 2019 · Resound or Oticon? in Hearing Loss

i have used both together – both companies make a phone clip, mini mic and TV streamer that work with both the hearing aid and implant – there is a remote for the implant that adjusts settings, but i have not yet a remote that works with both. hope this helps

Aug 19, 2019 · Resound or Oticon? in Hearing Loss

I have tested both and chose the Oticon Opn1 – since I bought mine late 2018, they have come out with an updated aid which I "hear" is even more powerful. I have worn Phonaks in the past and had a good experience. The audiologist you work with is very important, as so much of the art in properly fitting the aid rests with this key individual. Good luck!

Jun 17, 2019 · HLAA Convention 2019 - Who's going? in Hearing Loss

Would have gone except that requires 2 flights for those of us on west coast- crazy. Am concerned about losing hearing as a result of flying – 4 flights total round trip is more than I am willing to risk. I attended 2 years ago in Salt Lake City and it was terrific – boo to the location selection committee for those of us on the west coast.

Jun 3, 2019 · Anxiety and disbelief over sudden hearing loss and tinnitus in Hearing Loss

I just want to say I am very sorry for your hearing loss and increased tinnitus. Is it possible the hearing loss is conductive and may reverse? I know it is easier said than done, but stress and tinnitus go hand in hand. Anything you can do to reduce your stress level, be it speak to a therapist, be in nature, meditate,… can possibly help with the tinnitus, and hopefully, your overall well being.
