Can treating hearing loss help prevent dementia?
August 8, 2017 | Leave a reply

A study conducted by The Lancet Commission on Dementia Prevention and Care noted that 50 million
people have dementia worldwide – and that number is expected to triple by 2050. The need for
dementia prevention and management is urgent, as dementia not only affects the person who has it,
but it also impacts their family and friends.
The nine lifestyle factors
The Lancet Commission’s 24 international experts concluded that one in three cases of dementia
could be prevented if people managed nine lifestyle factors – one of which is managing hearing loss
during midlife (between age 40-65). The other eight include:
Increased childhood education
Regular exercise

Maintaining social engagements
Reducing or stopping smoking
Managing depression
Managing diabetes
Managing hypertension
Avoid obesity
Dementia typically doesn’t manifest itself with symptoms until age 65+, but the study’s authors say it
likely begins between ages 40-65. If people can manage the above nine modifiable risk factors early
on in life, it could great contribute to preventing or delaying dementia.
Dementia and hearing loss
Science isn’t yet certain why unmanaged hearing loss can increase the risk for dementia. But it has
confirmed that hearing loss strains your brain, leading to social isolation and depression, and it
accelerates brain atrophy.
