The effects of hearing loss are more serious than you think

Evidence indicates that hearing loss and cognitive decline are linked.
No one knows why. We're helping find out.

Based on combined results from multiple studies reported by the Lancet Commission on dementia in 2017, evidence shows that hearing loss is correlated with social isolation, mild cognitive impairment and dementia. In fact, there is strong evidence to show that:

Mild hearing loss doubles the risk of developing dementia

Moderate hearing loss triples the risk of developing dementia

Severe hearing loss increases the risk up to five times
