If you do an internet search, or you go on YouTube and search for ‘hearing test’, there are a number of online tests that come up. They play a frequency and you check to see if you can hear those frequencies or not.
These are OK to find out if you have a hearing loss or not. The problem is there are so many different problems involved in hearing issues that a test like this isn’t going to show.
You could have problems with wax. That’s something that could be easily taken care of.
You could have something more serious like a conductive loss, that means that there could be physical damage to the ear that maybe needs to be corrected with surgery.
Allergies can cause problems.
Your blood sugar can have an impact on your ability to hear well.
Salt levels can have an impact, too.
These are things you aren’t going to know unless you have your ears professionally tested.
What Type of Hearing Test Should You Have?
What you need to do is go to an audiologist or state licensed hearing aid specialist to get properly tested.
In a lot of cases, if you go to a specialist, you can probably have the hearing test done for free.
If you go to an audiologist, you may have to pay, but it could possibly be covered by your insurance company.
The important thing to know about having the test done by a professional is that you have a right to receive a copy of it, so you can take that wherever you want to go.
If you want to go somewhere else to purchase a hearing aid or go online to someplace like EarMall.com to buy one of our devices it’s your right to get the results of your examination.
