Repeated exposure to loud noise levels of more than 85 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss at any age. That level isn't so extreme; an av- erage conversation is about 50 deci- bels. A lawnmower is about 90 decibels. Combining loud activities, such as listening to music on your iPod while you mow the lawn, is even more damaging to your ears. That's because most people turn up the music even louder when they are operating noisy equipment. What else causes hearing loss? Infection, earwax buildup, an ob- ject in the ear, ear or head injury and a ruptured eardrum are all conditions that can lead to temporary or perma- nent hearing loss. Smoking and dia- betes impact how blood flow reaches hair cells, and can subsequently cause heating loss over time. Taking too many over-the-counter medica- tions like ibuprofen or aspirin can lead to irreversible deafness.

What are the signs of hearing loss? Often, the person whose hearing is impaired isn't aware of it, particu- larly if it's happened over a period of time. Family members are more likely to notice diminished hearing. Ringing or hissing in the ear, ear pain, or fluid leaking from the ear are signs that you need to see an audiol- ogist. You may feel like your ear is plugged, have trouble understanding what someone says to you or be un- able to follow a conversation when there is a lot of background noise like Belfield American Legion Auxiliary Christmas Party Thursday, Dec. 11, at 1:30 p.m., at the Senior Center; Bring 1 dozen cookies for exchange and paper products for the Pantry; coffee and pastries will be served. in "No Vacancy," a Nov. 24.

How is hearing loss diagnosed? At your appointment, the audiolo- gist will do a physical exam and in- quire about your symptoms and other health issues. The audiologist will use an otoscope, a lighted device, to look inside your ear. Simple, painless hearing tests the audiologist will give you will help define the extent and type of your hearing loss. How is hearing loss treated? Treatment depends on what type of hearing loss you have. The audi- ologist can help you learn to adapt to living with hearing loss or can treat the problem. In some cases, it may be as simple as removing earwax or pre- scribing medication f0r an infection. Once the problem is addressed, your hearing returns. If it's permanent hearing loss, you may need a hearing device. (Krystal Mann, audiologist, sees patients at Sanford Health Hearing Center in Dickinson, located at 1531 W. Villard St.~,Suite,B,.
