How to treat hearing loss
If you suspect you might have hearing loss, the best thing you can do is to contact your general practitioner to rule out any medical causes of hearing loss. In most cases, they will then recommend that you see an audiologist, an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) physician, or a hearing care specialist for further assessment.
During the appointment with a specialist, you will be asked questions related to your hearing, to help understand your hearing loss. You will then have a visual examination of your ears using an otoscope. This can help to identify causes of hearing loss, as it could be related to a blockage in the ear canal or an issue with your middle ear.
