(NC)-More than half of Canadians will experience some degree of hearing loss in the years after age 65. However, it's not just a problem affecting seniors. More and more young people are showing signs of hearing loss as early as their 30's and 40's. According to The Canadian Academy of Audiology, as much as 10 per cent of the Canadian population suffer from some form of hearing loss.

It is common for people with hearing loss to stop communicating with family and friends because they are unable to hear and understand what is being said. However, help is available and people with hearing loss can stay connected. Recognizing hearing loss is the first step in treatment and knowing the warning sign's is vital for early detection.

To help you identify the signs and symptoms of hearing loss, Phyllis Bensoussan, registered CASLPO Audiologist and Energizer offers the following tips:

• Do family members complain about your inability to hear?

• Do you frequently ask people to repeat what they have said?

• Do you have trouble hearing the television and/or radio? Do you prefer the television and/or radio louder than other people?

• Do you experience ringing, pain or fullness in one or both ears?

• Do you have a history of exposure to loud noise (loud concerts, guns, construction, etc.)?

• Do you have difficulty understanding what people are saying in noisy places?

If you experience any or all of these problems on a sudden or consistent basis, you may have some form of hearing loss. Experts recommend getting your hearing tested every two years. If you have questions about your hearing or suspect you have a hearing loss, contact an audiologist, who can test your hearing and provide you with information.
