Hearing aids may protect against dementia


16th July 2019

According to an online study conducted by University of Exeter and King’s College London, wearing a hearing aid to address age-related hearing problems may even help in better functioning of the brain.

The study “PROTECT”, builds on recent findings by the Lancet Commission on Dementia Prevention, Intervention and care, suggested that hearing loss can lead to dementia.

25,000 people aged 50 years and above were involved in the latest research and the reports suggest a hearing aid can protect the brain and potentially reduce dementia risk. Annual cognitive tests were conducted over two years in a group of people who wore hearing aids and another without it.

The results showed that people wearing hearing aids demonstrated better performance in measures like their working memory, attention and had faster reaction times than the people who did not have the devices.

Further research and a clinical trial will be conducted soon to validate the study findings.
