Topic: Negative Effects of Untreated Hearing Loss - For at least three decades, several prominent audiology researchers have speculated that hearing loss can significantly impact performance on dementia tests—including the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), the most popular test used for determining cognitive function. A new study found that reduced audibility significantly reduces scores on the MMSE, resulting in greater apparent cognitive deficits and possible misdiagnosis of dementia. Diabetes, Depression and Cardio Vascular Disease are also medical conditions associated with hearing loss. This session will discuss the negative effects of untreated hearing loss and the benefits of care that often lead to an improvement in the quality of life of seniors
