Is long-term tinnitus a precursor to hearing loss?

First, there is no necessary link between tinnitus and hearing loss.

Some young people also experience transient tinnitus due to overtime work and staying up late. This doesn't necessarily mean he has hearing loss. Some hearing loss patients do not have tinnitus symptoms.

However, for the elderly, especially those with chronic diseases and familial hearing loss, when tinnitus occurs, they must go to the hospital for a hearing examination. If there is no problem with the hearing test, we can analyze the specific situation of tinnitus. In addition, the elderly should have the awareness of hearing screening. If they find that they cannot hear clearly or have difficulty in verbal communication, they should go to the hospital for a hearing test in time.

Finally, if you notice hearing loss or tinnitus, hearing aids may help.
