What is the Cause of Hearing loss/Deafness?
Our professional team has done detailed research into the causes of hearing loss. We strive to bring the best possible solutions to the patient to give them a speedy recovery.
The foremost cause of hearing deficiency may be genetic in nature. Sometimes, a child may be born with deafness. It can be generally found in couples belonging to the same line of relatives or ancestors. But it can happen because of other factors too. The family history of a patient can suggest a point or two regarding hearing loss that they are suffering at the present. This inherited condition is medically called Otosclerosis that causes damage to the ear bones and thereby, affecting conductivity.
Small infections can impact the eardrums, the ossicles, and sometimes they may go as far as infecting the inner ear which often results in permanent hearing loss. If the person had a road accident, there are chances that organs responsible for hearing might be damaged in the process. Meningitis is also one of the major causes of permanent hearing loss.
Many adults over the age of 65 suffer from hearing loss, which usually involves high-frequency noises. This is not related to any sickness, but rather to a weakness that develops with age, similar to the need for reading glasses as one gets older.
More often than not, hearing loss cannot be directed at a specific cause. In some rare cases, a person loses the hearing capacity in one ear all of a sudden, it is usually attributed to Sudden sensorineural hearing loss. This disease is considered to be caused by a viral infection or a stroke-like syndrome in which the inner ear’s blood supply is temporarily cut off.
