Tue, Mar 17 11:40am · Communicating effectively with the hearing world. in Hearing Loss

I use the hearing aid buttons to turn it on. Why would you think it would take longer to do so? Also, don't forget to lower the volume of your hearing aid or you will get too much noise.

Have you tried the FODMAP diet for 2 to 6 weeks to see if it helps your IBS? Also I’ve been told to try one solution at a time to see if it works, so the diet alone without other meds might be a good first approach. It worked for me. Of course that doesn’t mean that exercise, esp yoga or tai chi, lots of water, no carbonated drinks or use of straws (to reduce bloating), and stress relief such as meditation aren’t important along with any medical solution. Stress is a major trigger for IBS and other GI issues.

As to your specific need for a good remote mic, I think the ConnectClip remote mic (Oticon) works well for me (with Oticon Opn) except in noisy environments. It also works better if I lower the sound on my hearing aid so the the ConnectClip microphone is primary or only one I'm hearing. Another option is the Roger clip mic. it has a better technology, but you will need the MyLink neck loop to connect it to your hearing aids, assuming you have telecoils in them. Or the Roger pen, but the clip mic gets better reviews (though not as cool!).

You are highlighting a serious problem – the lack of good sources of information on Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT). The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) recognized the problem. Using a federal grant, HLAA and partners created a Network of Consumer Hearing Technology Trainers. I'm one of the NCHATT Trainers, and I provide community programs on Hat.You might want to check with HLAA on whether an NCHATT trainer is located near you, or attend HLAA chapter meeting near you which often provide programs on HAT. Hearingloss.org has a lot of information on HAT too. I am excited at the idea of a book specifically on this issue. There are a few which include HAT, but not one I've seen specifically for it. In the meantime, I'll be glad to provide copies of presentations I've done on HAT.

My husband and I travel a lot. We’ve gotten sick a few times, mostly routine flu bugs. But we’ve done better since we started taking antiseptic wipes and wiping down our airline seats, including arm rests, tray tables, seat belt buckles- anything you touch. The airlines don’t clean very often. Also washing hands a lot helps. We have a trip to Spain and Portugal planned in April and I am nervous so hope to hear what else we can do to stay heathy despite the Coronavirus.

Nov 3, 2019 · Calcium and Vitamin D for bone density in Bones, Joints & Muscles

After reading this discussion, i researched vitamin k as suggested and found this article by a dietitian which confirmed all that parrot queen had written here: https://www.todaysdietitian.com/newarchives/060113p54.shtml. Very helpful as I have osteopenia and just learned of my vitamin D deficiency. I was told by my rheumatologist to take 1000mg of supplement D3, but no more than that. And nothing was said about vitamin K!

I’ve only see the PRI argument. I’d be interested in hearing the against argument.
