Elmhurst hearing center offers free screenings
ELMHURST – Nearly 48 million Americans suffer from hearing loss in at least one ear, according to a recent Johns Hopkins School of Medicine study. But Heidi McKay of Elmhurst's Sonus Hearing Care Center said early diagnosis improves the quality of life for those suffering from hearing loss.
"The hearing nerve is very similar to a muscle in that it can atrophy," said McKay, an audiologist with the center. "If you don't keep it active, it can become weaker."
The earlier individuals with hearing loss seek help, the slower their hearing loss may progress. Wearing a hearing aide keeps the hearing nerve active.
