Could there be a gene that protects us from tinnitus?
Hearing loss is something that affects around 1 in 6 Australians, according to the Australian Network on Disability*. This includes people of all ages, for a multitude of reasons. However, Audiology Australia estimates tinnitus, the symptom of phantom sounds, to be twice as prevalent as hearing loss.*
Too young to get tinnitus?
When you think someone who has hearing loss, many of us are likely to picture an older person. While it's true that many seniors experience age-related hearing loss, or presbycusis in their later years, hearing impairments can also affect people at any stage of their lives.
There’s a more effective way to find relief from tinnitus
When people develop tinnitus, it can be a potentially stressful time. Not only is there the distraction from the ringing, humming or buzzing in your ears, having tinnitus can also change the way you interact with others in social situations.
Tinnitus has been found to affect the way you process emotions
Dealing with a hearing impairment comes with its ups and downs. You may feel angry, frustrated and distressed that you're missing out on conversations with your loved ones.
Celebrities who experience tinnitus
Many of us will have heard a ringing in our ears from time to time, such as after a night out at dance clubs or after a music concert. Some people may even experience it after a long haul flight.
Can tinnitus be a symptom of other health concerns?
You wouldn't necessarily know by looking at someone whether or not they have tinnitus, but it doesn't mean that the condition isn't there. Estimated to affect up from 17 to 20 per cent of the Australian population, tinnitus involves hearing internal sounds akin to ringing, humming or buzzing.
Could your sweet tooth be making your tinnitus worse?
Many of us will already know that too much sugar in our diet can potentially lead to a range of adverse health effects down the line, but could your sweet tooth also aggravate your tinnitus symptoms?
Debunking tinnitus myths
Have you ever had a great time at a music concert, only to get home where it's quiet to find your ears ringing? Nearly everyone will have experienced the unsettling symptoms of tinnitus at some point in their life.
How much do you know about tinnitus?
At Audika, we are used to encountering people with a range of hearing concerns, from presbycusis, to noise-induced hearing loss and even tinnitus. This last condition isn't always the best understood, with a great number of people uncertain about what tinnitus involves.
Could meditation help people to manage their tinnitus?
A condition characterised by an internal ringing in the ears, tinnitus is estimated to affect one in seven people around the world. However, as there can be many different causes for the condition not everyone will experience it the same way.
