In the past, many people considered hearing loss as benign and did not inquire deeper about other audiological symptoms. They just considered it as a natural consequence of growing older. That can no longer be the case because of the startling findings in NIH-sponsored clinical studies and related research which showed up to 500x higher risk of dementia (including Alzheimer’s), falls with broken bones and clinical depression. To aid in the education about these issues, Now Hear This® is pleased to give you access to the following documents entitled Clinical Tidbits. If you are a physician or find yourself in the position of providing care to family and loved ones, please feel free to read or download any of the following. Feel free to contact us if you require additional information, or need the Bibliography upon which they are based.
