  • Tinnitus Support Group Report

    Report on our Tinnitus Support Group

    Our latest Tinnitus Support Group meeting at Marlow’s Liston Hall on March 19th was a huge success. The advertising for the event created such an unprecedented amount of interest, we ended up having to turn people away!

    Mr Chris Aldren, the local ENT Consultant, gave a talk titled “Why do we have Tinnitus?” covering aspects of the ear anatomy with a detailed presentation that gave the audience a clearer understanding of the causes of Tinnitus and the various treatment methods. Gilly Wright, the Support Group facilitator, commented: “The maximum attendance figures show how much interest there is in Tinnitus. I am very grateful to Mr Aldren for finding the time to talk to us and so delighted that the Marlow group is taking off like this.”

    Next meeting: 10.30 am Saturday April 7th, Liston Hall – an Introduction to Tai Chi (limited spaces available).

  • How to look after your hearing

    How to look after your hearing

    As with our sight, hearing is one of the things that we take for granted until it begins to deteriorate. For many, hearing loss is an inevitable development in life, but it is never too late to start looking after your hearing. Whether you already use hearing aids or simply want to protect your hearing, the following steps will tell you how to look after your hearing and keep it in the best possible shape throughout your life.

    Regular hearing testing

    Regular hearing tests are important for every individual. Identifying a problem early will make it easier to treat and will give you the best chance of protecting your hearing from damage. Like eyesight tests, hearing tests should be performed regularly and by a trusted professional. Use an independent audiologist who will be able to assess your hearing development over a number of years and keep your ears in tip-top condition.

    Music volume

    Listening to loud music and films is one of the most common causes of hearing damage. If you are a regular user of headphones, you should ensure that you keep them turned down to a reasonable level. Install a volume control app on your phone and this will prevent you from doing damage to the eardrums.

    Noise at work

    If you are exposed to noise at work, it’s very important that you wear the correct protective equipment. Workplace noise will very frequently exceed recommended levels. If you think that this is the case, talk to your employer about protective equipment. Employers are legally obliged to provide this if noise levels are too high.

    Hearing aids

    If your hearing does start to deteriorate, you should consider your long-term hearing health and seek advice on whether to use a hearing aid. Struggling on with poor hearing will mean that you are constantly increasing the volume of things around you and the result of this will be increased damage. A hearing aid, however, can help to regulate the volume and expose you to the correct level of sound for a comfortable life.
