Untreated hearing loss can permanently damage your ability to understand words.
Hearing loss is not something where you can recognize you have hearing loss--its not like you can see it for feel it. It get progressively worse without you even knowing it.
Hearing loss, unlike many other health problems, does not develop quickly. It progresses very slowly. Its like boiling a lobster. Hearing loss will slowly steal your quality of life without you even knowing it.
As your hearing decreases--as you age or your repeated exposure to loud noises, your brain is going to compensate without you even realizing it. For example, during conversation you may start reading lips or looking for facial expressions. Without these visual cues, lets say the person is in another room, or not facing you, you are not going to be able to understand what people are saying. As a result, you are going to put off doing anything about your hearing loss.
Hearing aids will just not work for you. You may have have put off getting help for years. Then, when you finally get hearing aids you say the hearing aids don't work. What is happening here is that the aids are in fact improving your hearing to a normal level, but your brain no longer is able to interpret the sound signals as words. The hearing aids can provide sound correction to normal levels, but they cannot do the brain's job of processing sounds into intelligible words. This is where many people need to go for speech therapy.
