Hearing Loss & Dementia in Saratoga, CA

Keep Your Mind Sharp with Our Top-Rated Hearing Restoration Treatment

When you visit our hearing aid center, we will work with you to restore your hearing, not only to improve your enjoyment of daily life but also to help you offset the psychological dangers that hearing loss can cause. Today, one in twelve Americans suffers from hearing loss, with over two-thirds of Americans over the age of 70 struggling to hear. Since our brains are deeply interconnected with the way we hear, dementia suffered by aging Americans can frequently be linked to the deterioration of their hearing ability. Keep reading to learn about our treatment for hearing loss & dementia in Saratoga, CA.

How Are Hearing Loss & Dementia Connected?

Dr. Frank Lin and his team at Johns Hopkins Medical Center have published numerous studies on the negative impact of hearing loss, including its strong link to cognitive decline and dementia. They have found three primary effects of hearing loss that contribute directly to your risk of dementia.

#1 – Social Isolation

It is common for individuals with hearing loss to withdraw from social interaction. If you struggle with any of the following, even to a mild degree, you are not alone:

  • Feelings of embarrassment
  • Fear of making mistakes during a conversation
  • Feeling like you are not part of a group conversation

Proper hearing health care enables you to maintain an active, engaging lifestyle. In turn, that social interaction helps keep your mind sharp. Keeping your brain mentally fit – with social interactions, communication, reading, and playing games – is a recipe for a long, healthy life!

#2 – Cerebral Atrophy

Multiple scientific studies have demonstrated that hearing impairment is associated with accelerated brain atrophy in both the overall brain, as well as severe reductions in volume in the parts of the brain associated with the memory, hearing, speech, and language.

Cerebral atrophy is a hallmark feature of individuals with dementia. A decrease in brain volume is essentially the result of losing millions of neurons. As the auditory system ages, we lose sensory cells in our ears. Each of those cells has the potential to make connections with millions of cells throughout the brain in areas involved with hearing, speech, memory, and beyond. Therefore, losing your hearing with aging can affect much more than your ears!

#3 – Cognitive Overload (i.e., Overworking Your Brain)

Hearing loss is not normal, and neither is the excessive strain that it puts on your brain. When you suffer from hearing loss, your brain is constantly overloaded as it works to fill in the missing pieces and follow the conversation. Imagine trying to read this page if every third word were missing. Now imagine reading a 300-page novel written like that! The extra time it takes you to follow what is being said in a conversation can really add up, and this can harm your brain over time.

I've been a client of Christine Throm for over 10 years (and 3 moves... you always stay with the best). She is a VERY dedicated professional, she is knowledgeable, and caring. My hearing loss has never been managed more effectively and the she has access to the latest and most advanced technologies. She has personally selected her staff to reflect her own values and high standards. Everyone there is friendly helpful. To top it off, they are now conveniently located adjacent to the "Mission Oaks" campus of Good Sam in a suite of beautiful, "state-of-the-art" offices.She is the GREATEST! Enough said.

Dr. Christine Throm was very knowledgeable and thorough. After one visit I understood what my hearing losses are and what I could expect from hearing aids. I have visited other audiologists with poorer results. I will be returning to Los Gatos Audiology.

I’ve been a patient of Los Gatos Audiology for several years and am on my second set of hearing aids that have been prescribed here. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Dr. Christine Throm is the best. She’s always takes time to understand any aspect of my personal hearing issues to provide the best care for me. I simply wouldn’t go anywhere else.
