Hearing loss is a common manifestation of the gradual decline in physical function of the elderly, but it does not mean that all elderly people must not hear well. There are differences in degrees.
The hearing loss of the elderly is not only related to age, but also has some other comprehensive and complicated reasons.
As they grow older, the elderly may suffer from hearing loss due to some chronic diseases; it may also be caused by various ear diseases in childhood or middle-aged age, such as otitis media. Therefore, when age is superimposed with disease factors, the degree of hearing loss in the elderly will be more serious than that of the same age.
