Millions Suffer Hearing Loss But Few Seek Help

Posted: Updated:

Doctors at Johns Hopkins University say more than 26 million Americans over the age of 50 have hearing loss but only one in seven uses a hearing aid.

The study found lack of health coverage is one reason, but for the most part, people simply feel hearing loss is a part of aging and that there's not much to do about it.

Researchers hope their findings change that perception.
