You may have hearing loss, and not even be aware of it. People of all ages experience gradual hearing loss, often due to the natural aging process or long exposure to loud noise. Other causes of hearing loss include viruses or bacteria, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors, and certain medications. Treatment for hearing loss will depend on your diagnosis.
Clinical studies have proven allergy drops to be an effective alternative to allergy shots. Allergy drops are taken home and administered under the tongue by the patient, allowing them to only have to make clinical visits one to two times per year after the initial test.
Tinnitus affects over fifty million people in the U.S. Tinnitus is described as a nagging buzzing, whistling, whining, or screeching noise in head or ears that varies in intensity and can be intermittent or constant. The degree of loudness and even the type of sound is particular to each person. Some tinnitus sufferers describe the noise as being as piercing and sharp as the signal used in the emergency broadcast system. Tinnitus is a symptom, not a disease, which can accompany any type of hearing loss.
Snoring is a fairly common, affecting 40 percent of men and 25 percent of women. Not only is snoring a nuisance, but 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods). Studies show that around 80% of the obstructive sleep apnea cases go undiagnosed which increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes in adults.
