There are many health conditions associated with hearing loss.  Mental well being, for example, is strongly linked to hearing health. As hearing loss can interfere with communication, this can sever social connections. Human beings are social by nature. When people lose their social connections they lose an important link to the world. This leads to social pain and sometimes feelings of rejection, which triggers the same neural pathways as physical pain.

 

There is a strong relationship between untreated hearing loss and depression. This is likely precipitated by withdrawal and social isolation. The good news is that other studies show that wearing hearing aids reduces depression. One study showed that 36% of patients who began to wear their hearing aids experienced improved overall mental health and 34% reported increased social engagement.
