Hearing Aids Tailored To Your Life!

Over 10,000 lives transformed
since 1996 in Silicon Valley

Hearing loss happens. It’s not uncommon to experience some loss as we get older, but lifestyle also makes a difference such as avoiding loud noise to help guard your hearing. Choosing other lifestyle habits like quitting smoking will do something good for your ears. But one factor you might not have considered is how body weight affects your hearing health. According to experts, if you’re overweight with a large waistline,you’re at a higher risk for suffering hearing loss.

Lower Body Weight Can Save Your Hearing

Here’s what the research shows. More than 68,000 women over 20 years of age took part in a Harvard Nurses’ Health Study. Once the results were analyzed, researchers concluded that women with a higher body mass index, or the body weight to height, were at greater hearing loss risk than women of normal weight.

Experts already know that excessive fat around the waistline is linked to health issues like heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Hearing loss is now another item you can add to your list of complications due to being overweight. It’s not all bad news. An energetic walk for several days a week or any regular exercise that gets your heart rate up will lower the risk of hearing loss, not to mention help you to feel healthier.

Start Your Exercise – But Don’t Blast Your Ear Buds!

You don’t need to exercise like an Olympian to gain the protective benefits of a workout. In the American Journal of Medicine, researchers published that taking a walk two or more hours a week reduced the chance of hearing loss by up to 15%.But here’s a word of caution. Blasting music or even your favorite book through your ear buds can reduce the hearing benefits of exercising. Pumping sound directly into your ear canal can produce damage even at medium levels. If you just can’t do without your buds, keep them at a 30% volume and don’t wear them 24/7.

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.
