According to the World Health Organisation, it predicts that by 2030 adult onset hearing loss will be in the top ten disease burdens in the UK, above cataracts and diabetes.
Hearing loss usually occurs gradually over time and can be an inconvenience, cause embarrassment, depression and isolation. It can take the average person between 10 and 15 years before they come to terms with it. As a result people try and compensate for it, asking people to repeat themselves, turning the TV up etc. It is often friend or family that tend to notice beforehand.
